Join Wordfest for a conversation with Amanda Lindhout and her mother, Lorinda Stewart. Hosted by CTV Calgary’s Jocelyn Laidlaw, the evening includes a Q&A and book signing.

On August 23, 2008, Lindhout was kidnapped outside Mogadishu in Somalia. The kidnappers demanded millions or she would be killed, and for the next 460 days, Stewart did everything in her power to get her daughter back alive. Exploring that journey, One Day Closer is Stewart’s first book.

Wordfest presents Lorinda Stewart & Amanda Lindhout at 7:00pm on November 3, 2017 at the John Dutton Theatre, Calgary Public Library (616 Macleod Tr. SE).
