Sunday, October 28th, the Meaford Public Library will host the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien in an exclusive fundraising event. Beginning at 2 pm in the Meaford Hall Opera House, Jean Chrétien will be joined by veteran CBC broadcaster and journalist Christopher Thomas who will interview him about his new book, My Stories, My Times. In My Stories, Chrétien recounts with warmth, insight, and his distinctive sense of humour many behind-the-scenes stories from a long, distinguished, and colourful career. Each $100 ticket for this special fundraiser to support the new Meaford Public Library building will include an autographed copy of My Stories, My Times and will go to fund the new, accessible Meaford Public Library building. Tickets are on sale at Meaford Hall. Reserve yours today at: www.meafordhall.ca or call 1-877-538-0463. (Source: Municipality of Meaford)
