McGill's Friends of the Library are proud to host the Blue Metropolis First Peoples Literary Prize Event at the 2016 Hugh MacLennan Memorial Lecture.
First Nations advocate & Governor General’s Award winning author, Thomas King will be interviewed by Rosanna Deerchild, host of CBC Radio’s Unreserved. A Q & A will follow.
Please note, unfortunately there are no longer any seats available. We have reserved a room opposite the Moot Court where we will live stream the event in an attempt to accommodate the overflow. But due to the high demand, we cannot guarantee that there will be space in the overflow room.
