Canadian Authors Series

Now in it’s 23rd year, the renowned Canadian Authors Series is confirming readings for its 2016-2017 season.  Become a member and enjoy seven great evenings of entertainment that include wine, food, live music, an author reading, an engaging question and answer period and a book signing.  All of this takes place in a haunted, but lovely, Victorian mansion featuring a 265-seat theatre!

From September to May on the last Thursday of the month, we bring in the greats of Canadian literature to the Roselawn Centre for the Living Arts, to read from their books, talk about their work, exchange dialogue with the audience and autograph books afterward. 

In past seasons we were fortunate to welcome some of Canada’s finest writers including Margaret Atwood, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Lawrence Hill, Pierre Burton, Mordecai Richler, Farley Mowat, Conrad Black, as well as colourful personalities such as Clara Hughes, Peter Mansbridge, Stuart McLean, George Chuvalo, Dr. David Suzuki, Mary Walsh, Rex Murphy and Margaret Trudeau
