Stories about Storytellers

Western Alumni presents Douglas Gibson’s unique and hilarious stage show, Stories about Storytellers, in support of the Alice Munro Chair in Creativity.

Guests will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with Michael Milde, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, to learn about how Western is honouring the only alumna to have won the Nobel prize in Literature.

Doug Gibson, in his traditional publisher's uniform of navy blazer, grey flannels and his Nobel Prize tie, shares stories about the authors he got to know well in the course of his career as an editor and publisher.

Prepare to meet Pierre Trudeau, Robertson Davies, Alistair MacLeod, John Diefenbaker, Mavis Gallant, Hugh MacLennan, Peter C. Newman, Brian Mulroney, Morley Callaghan, Paul Martin, James Houston, Peter Gzowski, W.O. Mitchell and of course, Alice Munro.

At the end of the show there will be the opportunity to purchase Doug Gibson's newest book, now updated to include Alice Munro's Nobel Prize in Stockholm, and an autographing session.

Registration is $20 per person and includes refreshments. All proceeds will be directed to the Alice Munro Chair in Creativity.
