R.H. Thomson

Join us to hear R.H. Thomson break a family secret.

It goes back more than 100 years to the First World War… and still shapes his family and himself.

Now, one of Canada’s most revered actors has written a searing memoir, By the Ghost Light, about how war changes every family and should change how we view history.

So join us for a special Remembrance Week event with R.H. Thomson in conversation with Eric Peterson who co-wrote and performed in Billy Bishop Goes to War, one of the most widely-produced plays in Canadian theatre.

Rick Mercer and Jann Arden

Rick Mercer launches the second volume of his #1-best-selling memoir, The Road Years.

Jann Arden launches her career as a novelist with The Bittlemores, a coming-of-age mystery story.

Here be wifi.

This is the last Omnium-Gatherum blog you’ll receive until the July 1st weekend. I’m out of the office, basking in the sunny Shetlands, Orkneys and Faroes. Before leaving, I wrote my ‘Out of Office’ email note and almost said I’d be off the grid. But no one really is any more, certainly not our friends on this trip whose most urgent question wasn’t “Here be dragons?”, but “How fast is the wifi in Tórshavn?” Maybe it’s time to rejoin the Flat Earth Society.
