Description

While the guns fell silent on November 11, 1918, the impact of the war was felt for months and years later. 100 years after the conflict, Friends of Royal Alberta Museum Society (FRAMS) invites Dr. Tim Cook to discuss Canada's Great War Legacy. Join us in the new Royal Alberta Museum on December 11, 2018 to reflect on the idea of Remembrance.

Doors open at 6 p.m., with drinks available by cash bar, and the lecture starts at 7 p.m. Dr. Tim Cook's books will be available for purchase through Audrey's Books prior to the lecture and in person at the event.

Dr. Tim Cook is a historian at the Canadian War Museum. He was the curator for the museum’s First World War permanent gallery, which has been visited since 2005 by an estimated 7 million visitors. He has also curated numerous temporary, travelling and digital exhibitions, including Victory 1918, an exhibition open now at the CWM on Canada and the Hundred Days campaign.

Dafoe Book Prize (twice). Vimy: The Battle and the Legend (2017) was an award-winning book and a number 1 national best-seller. His latest book is The Secret History of Soldiers: How Canadians Survived the Great War (2018).
