Mon, 15 May 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:15 PM MDT
The Edmonton Public Library is pleased to host award winning author and journalist Andre Picard as part of the Forward Thinking Speaker Series. As the Globe and Mail's public health reporter, Picard shares his observations and concerns about social isolation in Canada and explores opportunities to build connectedness within the community. This Forward Thinking Speakers event is sponsored by the City of Edmonton.
The Forward Thinking Speaker Series reflects EPL’s rich history of taking risks, trying new things out and redefining the modern library. EPL invites thought-leaders from a variety of industries and around a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.
All proceeds from this event will support the Stanley A. Milner Library revitalization project.
