ParlerFort speaking series in Toronto

Friends of Fort York in Toronto, as part of their plan to ensure Fort York is a destination for heritage- and history-minded Torontonians, are launching a new season in their Parler Fort speaking series.

This year's Parler Fort launches Monday, September 26 with an Isaac Brock evening featuring historian Wesley Turner and novelist Tom Taylor, both of whom have books out about Brock this fall, and City of Toronto's 1812 bicentennial historian Richard Gerrard.  That's 7 pm at Fort York ($10, free to students).

Future events:

  • Fenians night with Peter Vronsky and David A. Wilson -- October 24
  • Canadian monarchy night in November 
  • Civic architecture night led by John Bentley Mays in December
