Pursuits group in Midland features Barris talk on Vimy

Ted Barris speaking in Orillia at the Stephen Leacock Festival.

“Pursuits,” a non-profit group based in Midland, Ontario, will feature a visit from Ted Barris on April 8, 2013. Ted Barris has been invited to deliver one of his most sought-after talks – his recounting of the “Victory at Vimy.” It’s a unique telling of the famous WWI battle at Vimy Ridge, that, he says, gave birth to Canada’s nationhood. Barris will offer insights and images gleaned from some of the individual accounts – old interviews, memoirs, letters and diaries of the Canadian Corps troops – he assembled in the research/writing of his book “Victory at Vimy: Canada Comes of Age, April 9-12, 1917.”Copies of a number of Ted’s books will be on hand for sale and autographing.

When: 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 8, 2013.

Where: Midland Public Library, Midland, Ontario
