Yorkminster Park Speakers Series: Ron Brown, “Top 170 Unusual Things to See in Ontario”

September 22 @ 7:00 pm

Ron Brown’s latest book, Top 170 Unusual Things to See in Ontario, was newly released and expanded in 2022. Using the book as a starting point, this illustrated lecture will explore some of Ontario’s most unusual features and landscapes including such phenomena as The Screaming Heads, Guelph’s “Notre Dame”, Toronto’s Graffiti Alleys, and its “Luminous Veil” on the Bloor Street Viaduct as well as the light show in Brockville’s railway tunnel.

This lecture is a live, in-person event in Cameron Hall. You do not need to pre-register to attend – just show up.

The lecture will also be available online as a live webcast for which we do ask you to pre-register. Registration opens soon.

He has published more than twenty books on the heritage of Ontario and Canada, and he lectures on, and leads tours of, heritage landscapes across Ontario. He has participated on TVO’s Studio Two panels to determine Ontario’s “most historic town,” Ontario’s “prettiest town,” and Ontario’s “best main street.” Ron is a member of the Travel Media Association of Canada and is past chair of The Writers’ Union of Canada, whose “Freedom to Read Award” he received in 2015 for his ongoing promotion of freedom to read and write in Canada.

This lecture is co-sponsored by Mary Morton Tours.
