The Trudeau Foundation Society is holding a group book launch on Friday, November 13, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the University of Ottawa (Desmarais Building, room 12102, 55 Laurier Avenue East).

The event is being held in conjunction with the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation's Annual Conference that will be taking place in Ottawa from November 12-14.

The launch is an opportunity for the authors in the Foundation community to discuss issues important to them. The authors - past and current scholars, mentors and fellows - will present their work during a discussion led by Trudeau mentors Marie-Lucie Morin and John Sims. The discussions will focus on eight themes: immigration, health, ethnicity, memory, security, belonging, sexuality, and the environment.

The works will be available for sale on site by university library Coopsco Outaouais and the event will be broadcast in recorded format by MAtv Outaouais.

For more information about this event, please contact the organizers at society@trudeaufoundation.ca.

Organizing Committee: Dyane Adam, Catherine Bélair, Marie-Joie Brady, Rita Shelton Deverell, Leah Levac, Jason Luckerhoff and Mélanie Millette.
