Margaret Visser

Margaret Visser, originally uploaded by johnwmacdonald.

She is an instantly likeable and charming lady with a great stage presence. I'm a fan.

From the OIWF web site: "Margaret Visser, the award-winning author of Much Depends on Dinner and The Geometry of Love, shares her exploration of gratitude as a key to understanding the assumptions, hopes, preferences and fears that underlie our everyday behaviour. Her new book, The Gift of Thanks, reflects on North American customs and argues that our own notions of gratitude influence a wide range of traditions, such as the wrapping of gifts, the ritual of Remembrance Day ceremonies and even the exchange of compliments. Join us for an evening of extraordinary insights into gratefulness that will leave you both thankful and newly aware of the power of those two important words."
