First up is Life and the Law with Former Chief Supreme Court Justice Beverley McLachlin on Monday September 23 at 6:30PM. Beverly McLachlin will be discussing her book Truth Be Told and if you’re into politics and glass-ceiling breaking, you don’t want to miss this.
As the first woman to be named Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley McLachlin made Canadian history and shaped some of the most important issues of our time—from the legalization of same-sex marriage to the introduction of assisted dying. In Truth Be Told, the former Chief Justice tells her story for the first time. In an age of division and uncertainty, this moving memoir is a reminder that the rule of law remains our best hope for a progressive and bright future—and a remarkable glimpse into the life and mind of a true legal visionary.

And next is The #MeToo Moment: Robyn Doolittle's Had It Coming on Thursday September 26 at 6:30PM. Robin Doolittle will be talking all about her new book Had It Coming and if you’ve been a fan of her reporting (her series “Unfounded” is absolutely incredible), this is the event for youuuuuuu.
The Globe and Mail’s Robyn Doolittle is one of Canada’s most ground-breaking journalists. Based on the years she spent reporting on police mishandling of sexual assault cases, her timely and illuminating new book Had It Coming brings a personal voice to the #MeToo movement and its aftermath. At a time when the world is increasingly aware of the abuses perpetrated by men in positions of power—from Bill Cosby to Jian Ghomeshi—Doolittle joins us to discuss how attitudes around sexual behaviour have changed and still need to change.
