Club members were spellbound as our March speaker, esteemed longtime editor and publisher turned memoirist and performer, Douglas Gibson, recounted stories of Canada’s greatest storytellers since Confederation. His speech was enhanced by a PowerPoint presentation complete with caricatures of the authors and music linked to the various eras.

Our February speaker was Lindsay Michael, co-host and senior producer of CBC Radio One’s four-year-old “Podcast Playlist,” which curates the best of podcasting. Lindsay is a past recipient of two CFUW Charlottetown scholarships and has fifteen years’ experience in public broadcasting. She took us through podcasting’s history dating back to the 1980s and also informed us that podcasting can be any length, is easy to make by anyone and needs no government regulation.

Using donated red dresses, Metis artist Jaime Black has created an installation art project that serves as a visual reminder of the missing and murdered women, girls and two-spirited persons.
The REDress Project is part of a week of special events running from March 5 to 9. Find out more here.
