John Ralston Saul on his new book The Comeback: Expanding the CircleExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 — 7:30 PM EST

John Ralston Saul

John Ralston Saul speaks about his latest book The Comback, a powerful pamphlet on the growing force of indigenous peoples in Canada in spite of the difficulties so often portrayed.

Wide in scope but piercing in detail, The Comeback presents a powerful portrait of modern Aboriginal life in Canada, in contrast with the perceived failings so often portrayed in politics and in media. Saul illustrates his arguments by compiling a remarkable selection of letters, speeches and writings by Aboriginal leaders and thinkers, showcasing the extraordinarily rich, moving and stable indigenous point of view across the centuries.

Discussion moderated by Professor Jasmin Habib (Political Science), followed by a book signing.
