Author Talk: GREAT SCOTS: Fine Canadian Fiction Writers with Links to Scotland

July 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Canada Day may be over, but it’s not too late to celebrate!

Join Douglas Gibson, editor, publisher, author and performer, as he presents the Toronto premiere of Great Scots, recounting the literary contributions of Scottish-Canadians from 1867 to present.

Gibson draws on his extensive knowledge and experience, having worked with several Scottish-Canadian literary icons as an editor and publisher–including Hugh MacLennan, W.O. Mitchell and Alice Munro, among others. With the help of superb author caricatures by Anthony Jenkins, he brings their works and lives into dramatic focus in this entertaining and informative journey through Canadian literary history.
