Conrad Black will be appearing at the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library on Tues., June 26, 2012 at 7 p.m. to discuss the recent events in his life and his memoir, A Matter of Principle. Black, who was fired as Chairman of Hollinger International in 2004 when he was accused of fraud, was recently released from prison in the U.S. following his conviction and subsequent appeal. Black will be interviewed by TVOntario’s Allan Gregg.
In A Matter of Principle, Black writes about his presumption of guilt by the media and vigorous prosecution of his charges, as well as discusses world leaders including George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, Rupert Murdoch, Jean Chrétien, Henry Kissinger, Izzy Asper, Eddie Greenspan and Richard Perle.
The event is free and tickets will be available online at the Toronto Public Library Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at 10 a.m. on Thurs., May 31, 2012.
