The Great Escape: A Canadian Story

Join us on Tuesday May 27, 2014 at LAMP, 185 Fifth Street at 7PM. Our guest speaker will be Ted Barris an award-winning journalist, author, and broadcaster. He will speak to us about his latest book The Great Escape: A Canadian Story. Ted will recount for us this nearly mythical WWII escape operation through the voices of those involved, many of whom trained in Canada, served RCAF bomber and fighter squadrons, were shot down over Europe, imprisoned at Stalag Luft III, and ultimately became co-conspirators in the actual Great Escape. Copies of the book can be purchased at the meeting for $35.
