The Niagara Parks Commission is pleased to announce a new four-part literary speaker series, Coast to Coast: Canada’s Literary Women, in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary and the multitude of unique and extraordinarily talented, female literary voices found within this country.
The new series will take place on the first Thursday of each month from September to December, beginning on Thursday, September 7 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Laura Secord Homestead. Each event will comprise a wine and cheese with a lecture and open discussion, highlighting a different Canadian female author and a feature novel they have written.
