More than a Footnote: Canadian Women You Should Know About

Our presenter on March 28, Karin Wells, is best known as a CBC radio documentary maker and author. Her work has been heard on radio networks around the world and has been recognized by the United Nations and is a three-time recipient of the Canadian Association of Journalist documentary award. Wells worked – briefly – as a line worker in a pea factory, a school teacher and as an actress. She has a graduate degree in law and in 2011 was inducted into the University of Ottawa’s Common Law Honour Society.

Wells will highlight women from the Cobourg area including Canada’s first astrophysicist and a doctor who discovered a treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Celebrating Women’s History Month, speaker Wells’ new book is aptly titled for this month’s celebration.

Karin will include new details of Mina Benson Hubbard whose story she presented last year as the first chapter and will share new source material with us. This is our opportunity to celebrate women who have made a difference.

Join us on Tuesday, March 28 for an informative presentation. Doors open at 7:00 pm. All are welcome. Bring a friend or two! Members free – Guests $5.00. Karin’s latest book will be available for purchase if you would like an autographed copy.
