400 spend an evening with former first lady

News Dec 01, 2010 Ancaster News

More than 400 residents attended last week’s An Evening with Margaret Trudeau, an intimate and informal talk by Canada’s youngest first lady.

The event was a fundraiser for the Carnegie Gallery in partnership with Bryan Prince Bookseller.

At St. Paul’s United Church in Dundas, Trudeau spoke with honesty and brutal candour about her battle with bipolar disorder and the destructive and addictive behavioural patterns that the illness caused. She said the patterns resulted in the breakup of her two marriages, her admission to psychiatric wards, and eventually, her enrolment in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Afterwards, Trudeau signed copies of her new, highly acclaimed memoir, Changing My Mind, which covers her journey of recovery, acceptance and hope.

The event raised more than $8,000 for the Carnegie Gallery’s new display cabinets.
