An Evening with Bruce and Vicki Heyman
May 1, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$35
Advance ticket sales are now closed. A limited number of tickets will be available for sale at the door.
Kingston WritersFest presents an exclusive evening with former US Ambassador Bruce Heyman and Vicki Heyman, co-authors of The Art of Diplomacy. Bruce served as the United States Ambassador to Canada under President Barack Obama from 2014 until 2017, and this book, written in alternating chapters with his partner Vicki, is a personal and insightful call to action and a much-needed book about one of the most important bilateral relationships in the world—the relationship between Canada and the US—and why diplomacy matters now more than ever before.
Bruce and Vicki will speak with interviewer Eric Friesen about their three years in Canada, tell behind-the-scenes stories and discuss the importance of creating cultural and artistic exchange between Canada and the US, of promoting economic and trade interests, and overall, of making a lasting positive impact on one of the most important relationships in the free world today.
Ambassador Bruce Heyman appears regularly on CBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg, CTV, CNBC, and other media outlets as an expert on trade and bilateral issues. Vicki Heyman was an American cultural envoy in Canada, leading cross-border conversations and programs related to the arts, social innovation, and youth engagement. She is on the board of the Council for Canadian American Relations, the international advisory board of C2 Montreal, and Chicago Media Project. Vicki and Bruce live in Chicago where they are co-founders of Uncharted,llc.
