The Hip: More than a Band with Michael Barclay
The passing of Gord Downie marked a tragic day for many Canadians. We lost not only a brilliant artist but also a role model for reconciliation with Indigenous people.
Next Monday, June 11 from 7-8:30 pm, acclaimed musical journalist Michael Barclay, author of the first print biography of The Tragically Hip, The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip, discusses the band's impact on Canadian culture and Gord Downie's role in reconciliation with Indigenous people. A Q&A, book purchase and signing will follow.
