Everyone is welcome to the launch of Mary Foley, Mary Doyle, the latest book by Marjorie Doyle. The book is a journey to uncover the layers of her mother’s life, which was not a straightforward story to tell—secrets, lies, omissions, and equivocations were the tools that her mother, Mary, relied on for protection.

Marjorie Doyle has previously published A Doyle Reader, with Boulder Books. Her columns and essays have appeared in the Globe and Mail, Ottawa Citizen, National Post, Fiddlehead, Geist, Calgary Herald, Queen’s Quarterly, Antigonish Review. Her broadcast career included hosting the national CBC radio show That Time of the Night. Marjorie has been awarded a National Magazine Award and (with her brother John W. Doyle) two CBC Radio Awards for Programming Excellence and a Golden Sheaf nomination for the documentary about their father Gerald S. Doyle.
