An Evening with Canadian Author Lawrence Hill

August 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Free – $15

The award-winning author of The Book of Negroes and The Illegal will speak from the theatre’s main stage about his passionate views on elder care and assisted dying in Canada, providing his perspective on the journey to death for his extraordinary mother, Donna Mae Hill. At 90 years old, after a remarkable life, much of it spent fighting for civil rights in Canada, Donna Mae Hill travelled to Switzerland for an assisted death because Canada’s laws prohibited it. Lawrence Hill and his niece were present at her end of life.
Select books written by Lawrence Hill will be available for sale and signing.
