Ex-GG Clarkson in town to sign her new book

Adrienne Clarkson comes to Victoria for book signing

Former governor general Adrienne Clarkson will stop in Victoria to promote her new book, Room for All of Us: Surprising Stories of Loss and Transformation.

The 72-year-old’s fifth book, Room for All, tells the stories of Canadian immigrants who, like her, have achieved great things since coming to this country. Among those profiled are Naheed Nenshi, Calgary’s Ismaili-Canadian mayor, and David Albahari, a Serbian-Canadian writer.

Clarkson will speak Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m., at Fairfield United Church, 1303 Fairfield Ave. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased Munro’s Books, 1108 Government St., where copies of Clarkson’s book just hit the shelves in hardcover last Saturday.

For more information call Munro’s at 250-382-2464.
