Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau is a traveller, filmmaker and journalist who was born into one of the most prominent political families in the country. Over the past decade and a half, his films and reports on issues of geopolitical importance have been seen and read by millions of Canadians. He charted out the intimate realities on both sides of the Israeli security barrier, explored the pluralism of Canadian identity, stood up for the rights of arbitrarily imprisoned terror suspects in Canada, tracked youth-driven democratic awakenings in the Balkans, shed light on the origins of unrest in Darfur, Liberia and Haiti and deconstructed the Canadian peace-keeping legacy fifty years after Pearson’s Nobel.
Organization for Literacy in Lambton, in partnership with The Book Keeper, the Sarnia Public Library and TVCogeco, is honoured to present Alexandre Trudeau at Showcase Literacy’s 2016 event.
All funds raised from the event will support the Organization for Literacy in Lambton’s children’s programs. Skill and Drill children’s programs are offered, free of charge, at 7 different locations throughout Sarnia-Lambton. The programs aim to improve the math and reading skills of children in grades 1-7. The programs also help children build confidence and self-esteem, as they establish much-needed essential skills.
