Celebrate 50 Years of CBC Massey Lectures with author Adam Gopnik

Adam Gopnik.jpgCBC Massey Lectures celebrates its 50th Anniversary with best selling author, essayist, cultural observer, and famed New Yorker contributor Adam Gopnik.

His subject is winter - the season, the space, the cycle. Gopnik takes us on an intimate tour of the artists, poets, composers, writers, explorers, scientists, and thinkers, who helped shape a new and modern idea of winter. A stunningly beautiful meditation buoyed by Gopnik's trademark gentle wit, Winter is at once an enchanting homage to an idea of a season and a captivating journey through the modern imagination

The lecture in Vancouver will be the fourth in the five-part series. Presented by CBC Radio One and UBC, Gopnik will be sharing his stories on "Recreational Winter - The Season at Speed" at the Chan Centre on October 23 at 8pm.  For more information, visit: www.cbc.ca/ideas
