April 26  The East&West Dialogue

6:30 – 7:00 PM  Meals & social

7:00 – 8:30 PM  Guest speakers’ presentations, and Q & A sessions

This is our monthly special event!  Come to have a dialogue with guest speakers from different cultural backgrounds.  The guests will share their experiences with cultural differences, their expertise, observation, and/or suggestions that may be helpful to immigrants, especially  with their social skills.  We hope that through this communication we can develop a deeper understanding of Canadian society, how other people are thinking and living, and how we can adapt ourselves to our new country better.

For details, please check our Event page often to see the announcement.  An announcement is usually posted a week ahead of the Dialogue, giving guest speakers’ names, background, and major topics they will present.

Cost: Free (a simple meal included). A donation of a loonie or a toonie would be appreciated, too.

Please RSVP as soon as possible, but definitely by Wednesday night, April 25 at: ericliujt@gmail.com to book for meals.  Thanks!

We look forward to seeing you at our book club!
