Can one person make a difference? Join us as one of Canada's finest journalists and bestselling authors, Lawrence Scanlan, reads from A Year of Living Generously: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Philanthropy. Scanlan volunteered with twelve different charitable organizations, from a soup kitchen to working in an HIV-AIDS shelter in Costa Rica. What he discovered during his year-long odyssey was the new face of philanthropy - its players, its politics, its undeniable satisfactions and its fundamental perils. He also confronts some uncomfortable truths about the nature of personal engagement and the societal divide that allows us to look away.
