In just over a week, Carousel of the Nations takes over the city with events through most of June.

It's starting. That time of year when there are so many weekend events to choose from, you have to have a special calendar just to keep up with it all. This weekend, there's Art in the Park, the Strawberry Festival, and Beaverfest ...just to name a few. And next weekend, there's another big event that will see lots of top entertainment coming to Windsor. The annual Carousel of the Nations kicks off next weekend with Carousel by the River down at the Riverfront Festival Plaza. The entertainment for the weekend was announced last night. Alexander Zonjic is the artistic director of Carousel by the River and he's here to tell us more.

A Troublesome Boy - published by Groundwood Books - looks at life in a boarding school and the chuirch sanctioned abuse that occured there...all told thru the eyes of one of the young boys held there.
