Internationally known as Canada’s youngest first lady when she married Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in 1971, Margaret has since lived a rich and interesting life, raising five children and travelling throughout the world. However, privately, she has struggled with bipolar disorder.
In her new, much-anticipated memoir, Changing My Mind, Margaret Trudeau speaks with the utmost candour and honesty about the mental illness that affected her life so profoundly. A recipient of the Society of Biological Psychiatry Humanitarian Award, Trudeau will talk about her journey of recovery, acceptance and hope.
In the words of Globe and Mail reviewer Andrew Cohen, “While much of the tale is achingly sad, shaded by mental illness, it is affecting and uplifting.”
An Evening with Margaret Trudeau in support of the Carnegie Gallery takes place on Wednesday, November 24th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church, 29 Park Street, Dundas. The doors open at 7 p.m. with a reception following.
Tickets are $15 each. For tickets call the Carnegie Gallery at 905-627-4265, or Bryan Prince Bookseller, 905-528-4508.
