Join us on Friday, January 19, 2018, for a presentation by Ed Struzik, the author of Firestorm, alongside Jamie Coutts, Regional Fire Chief for Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service; and Mike Flannigan, Professor of Wildland Fire at University of Alberta.

Ed Struzik will discuss and present photographs of 12 incredible wildfires that have burned in North America, and had the biggest impact on society and fire management, over the turn of the last century. 

Of those 12 fires, three of them burned in Alberta, but surprisingly the Fort McMurray wildfire of 2016, dubbed "The Beast" is not on that list. Hear Struzik explain how he came to the conclusion to leave the Fort McMurray wildfire off his list, and find out what Jamie Coutts, Fire Chief for Slave Lake, Alberta -- who fought the wildfires in both Fort McMurray and Slave Lake -- thinks of this conclusion. Does Coutts agree or disagree with Struzik's assessment? We'll also hear from Dr. Mike Flannigan, Professor of Wildland Fire at the University of Alberta, and get his thoughts on the matter. 

Following the presentation, guests will enjoy a reception, with the opportunity to meet Struzik, Coutts and Dr. Flannigan. Ed Struzik will also be available for a book signing. 

Light refreshments will be provided and a cash bar will be available.
