Off Script: Living Out Loud by Marci Ien | She’s Giving You the Read and Talking di Tings!
March 16 at 12pm
For over a decade, millions of Canadians started their day with Marci Ien. As a Black female news anchor and, later, the first Black woman in Canada to co-host a national morning show, Marci felt the pressure to stay “on script” – with little room for error. She had to be great. She had to show, every day, that she deserved to be there. But suddenly her career went in another direction and Marci came “off script.” Join Trey Anthony and Marci as they have an intimate and candid conversation about Marci’s new book Off Script, and Marci will share how to find your courage to speak up, trust your voice and follow your own formula for what matters most.
About the She’s Giving You the Read and Talking di Tings! series:
Join four amazing Black, female authors as they talk about their own writing journey. Are there more obstacles to overcome as a Black author? What does it take to get a book published? Why are Black stories important? How do they respectfully share intimate parts of their own lives while being respectful of their loved ones? What does talking di tings mean to them?
Presented in partnership with Kuumba (presented by TD Ready Commitment and funded by the Government of Canada), a series of events at Harbourfront Centre celebrating Black History Month that features the work of choreographers, authors, musicians, visual artists and thought leaders from across Canada.
