About this event

Enjoy a warm and spirited dialogue with two engaging Canadians who share a passion for excellence in their professions.

Pull up a chair and settle-in to enjoy this on-line stimulating exchange of ideas between our two special guests: Alan Neal, award-winning journalist and host of CBC Ottawa’s All in a Day, and Elizabeth Hay, winner of the prestigious Giller Prize and best-selling author.

Their discussion will begin with Elizabeth Hay’s memoir All Things Consoled about the emotionally charged events surrounding the last few years of her parents’ lives; but you can expect much more. During recent decades, Alan’s and Elizabeth’s career paths have crossed periodically, so they share insights and experiences that bring a personal flavour to this online rendezvous. Both are accomplished writers and speakers, and you are invited to share this evening with them.

There will be opportunities for questions from the audience.
