Madame Clarkson

Clarkson was in conversation with Ken Rockburn at the regal Fairmont Chateau Laurier this Sunday evening. The event was sold out and the line up for the book signing was the longest I've seen in a long time. She was promoting her autobiography, Heart Matters, "that traces a remarkable journey, from her family’s escape in 1942 from Japanese-occupied Hong Kong to her often controversial time as Canada’s head of state." I was telling Dr. and Mrs. Steven Artelle, whom I bumped into, my son Matthew will making his debut at the festival later on this week. (On the the 5th of October I believe.) Coincidentally, from a 2005 Ottawa International Writers Festival event, I have several other photographs of Madame Adrienne Clarkson in conversation with José Saramago (in English).
