Ken Dryden lecture

Event announcement:

Ken Dryden

Friends of the Library and McGill Bookstore present

The Hugh MacLennan Memorial Lecture

KEN DRYDEN
BECOMING CANADA: OUR STORY, OUR POLITICS, OUR FUTURE

Thursday, October 14, 2010 at 5:30pm
Tanna Schulich Hall
555 Sherbrooke Street West

In this passionate, thought-provoking vision for Canada, Ken Dryden argues that we have paid a price for having the wrong sense of ourselves as a country. The old definition of Canada – genial but sometimes too self-deprecating and ambition-killing – is no longer the real story. Through recent global events such as Barack Obama’s election and first year in office; the climate conference in Copenhagen; and even the 2010 Winter Olympics, Dryden explores the clash between politics and story, and the importance of a nation finding its true narrative in order to thrive.

Reception to follow.

To RSVP please email rsvp.libraries @ mcgill.ca or call 514-398-4681. Seating limited.
