Barris speaks at RCAF 429 Wing Christmas banquet

GREAT_ESCAPE_JACKET_FINAL_FRONT_EThe RCAF 429 Wing welcomes returning guest, Ted Barris, to speak to the Wing’s Christmas banquet. On Friday, Dec. 13, 2013, broadcaster, journalist and author Barris will talk about and present visuals from his brand new book, The Great Escape: A Canadian Story. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood blockbuster movie The Great Escape, (with Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, etc.). But as Ted will demonstrate drawing from his book, the most famous WWII POW breakout was not a story of British heroes and Yankee know-how. The Great Escape was very much a story of Canadian leadership and courage. It’s more exciting than the Hollywood movie. And it’s all true!. As always, he will have copies of his books for sale and autographing.

When: 5:30., Friday, December 13, 2013.

Where: The Briars, 55 Hedge Road, R.R. 1 Jackson’s Point, Ontario
