Wordfest: After the Festival – Roméo Dallaire

With the 10-day festival completed for another year, Wordfest is continuing its post-festival momentum by hosting a conversation with retired Lieutenant-General and Canadian Senator Roméo Dallaire.

The discussion, being held at the John Dutton There in Calgary on Nov. 21, 2016, will revolve around Dallaire’s new memoir Waiting for the First Light: My Ongoing Battle with PTSD. 

Dallaire is set to have a personal conversation with Calgarians about how he was promoted to force commander for UNAMIR in 1993, as a result bearing witness to the Rwandan genocide, and the aftermath that followed living through 100 days of slaughter.

Tickets for the event are $20, and can be purchased here.
