A Leacock Love Story

Wednesday, June 19, 2024 at 7PM ON ZOOM

Author Stephen Butler Leacock, who immortalized Orillia in his book Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, is known as the grandfather of Canadian humour and at one point was the most famous humourist in the English-speaking world. He didn’t reach his success all on his own.

Join Amanda Marino, Experience Development Officer at the Leacock Museum National Historic, with her talk: A Leacock Love Story. Amanda will explore the relationship between Stephen Leacock and the women in his life, specifically his wife, Beatrix Hamilton Leacock with whom a beautiful love story bloomed.
