In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the publication of William Morris's News From Nowhere, a small but potent group of WMSC members attended our book discussion and picnic on Saturday, August 22.
The location was Hanlan's Point, of the Toronto Islands, a 10-minute ferry ride from downtown.
Professor William Whitla gave us a great introduction and led the
discussion. For those of you who missed this, Bill will be giving a
lecture this November on the same subject. Watch your inbox/mailbox for details!
The weather was
perfect, the conversation was fascinating and the company was excellent. There has been a request to do something similar next summer, so if you have any suggestions as to what to read, let us know!
