John Ralston Saul is a Canadian author, essayist, and President of PEN International. He has received 14 honorary degrees, has been the Massey lecturer, received the Order of Canada, and won the Governor General’s Award. Time Magazine declared him as “prophet” and Utne Reader listed him as one of the world’s 100 leading thinkers and visionaries.

We are witnessing revolutionary movements happening around the world from the Occupy movement to the Arab Spring.  These acts of defiance to the status quo are causing people to challenge and question our role as citizens.  Our power is no longer being left to a few decision makers, but rather a groundswell of creativity, passion and commitment has led millions to mobilize and make governmental, social, and environmental change possible. John Ralston Saul will share his thoughts on this power shift and how the power of a people’s voice can affect Alberta during an election. 

This event is also co-sponsored by Calgary Scope SocietyThriveREAPKnox United Church Social Justice Committee, the Parkland Institute, the Calgary and District Labour Council (CDLC), the Calgary Herald, and Pages Books
