Welcome to Overdue Finds, an Edmonton Public Library podcast. Bryce Crittenden and Caroline Land will be hosting conversations about movies, music, books, pretty much any sort of popular culture and media you can think of and likely some you’ve never thought of. We’re hoping you’ll learn more about what you can find at the library.

Have you missed EPL’s Forward Thinking Speaker Series? We have too! This week, hosts Bryce and Caroline are joined by author Irshad Manji to talk about her upcoming virtual presentation “Moral Courage for Messy Times.” She tells us what people can expect from her presentation, how she defines ‘moral courage,’ and how she feels about social media.  We also learn about the role libraries played in her childhood, get the inside scoop on where to eat in Brooklyn, and discuss our favourite fictional dogs.  Don’t miss this conversation or her upcoming session – we’re really looking forward to it!

Tickets are now available for Irshad Manji: Moral Courage for Messy Times on February 18, 2021. What does it mean to have moral courage and how can we listen instead of label? Irshad Manji will discuss these ideas and why freedom of expression is so important at our next Forward Thinking Speaker Series event on February 18th. Tickets are free and available now. This event is presented in partnership with Peter Lougheed Leadership College, and with assistance from Mercier & Mercier National Bank FinancialEdmonton Shift LabEdify and Calgary Public Library.
