Lawrence has been a journalist for almost four decades – with daily newspapers (editor of The Nelson Daily News in B.C., literary editor of The Whig-Standard in Ontario), magazines (managing editor of Harrowsmith), and in radio with two national CBC programmes (producer on Morningside and Writers & Company). He has won numerous prizes for his writing, including three National Magazine Awards.
A Year of Living Generously, follows Lawrence as he volunteers with 12 different charities, among them well-known institutions Habitat for Humanity, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Canadian Crossroads. Drawing from first-hand experiences, he tests the ideas and theories on global aid and charity and makes a compelling case for greater commitment and real connection, in the form of on-the-ground volunteer work, from us all.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see Lawrence Scanlan in person as he reads from A Year of Living Generously.
