Enoch Turner Schoolhouse Foundation (Virtual and In-Person): Speaker’s Corner – The Great Escape, with Michael Enright

November 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Speaker’s Corner returns this fall with a new host and a provocative new series!

Over four Tuesday evenings in October and November, CBC Radio broadcaster and writer Michael Enright will explore the theme of ARRIVAL.

Each program in the series will examine the challenges of arriving in a foreign land to start a new life. Immigrants and refugees who made Canada their new home will share the hopeful yet often harrowing stories of their journey.

Join us at no cost for these compelling conversations.

Persians ran from Iran during the Revolution. Haitians sought refuge after earthquakes. The Irish ran away from the Troubles. Syrians escaped from invasion and devastation. American draft dodgers arrived on our doorstep and stayed. Afghans yearned for freedom, away from the control of the Taliban. Indians searched for a path from poverty and/or climate catastrophe. Ukrainians are now coming for safety from war.

Join us to hear the compelling stories of three people who chose Canada as their escape route…

October 11th: They Came as Children

October 25th: The Great Escape

November 1st: Overlooked and Underemployed

November 15th: Fear of Deportation

Doors open at 6:30PM. Light refreshments will be served.

Each program begins at 7PM.
