Wordfest’s Imagine On Air presents Ken Dryden in celebration of his highly anticipated new book The Series, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. This truly special one-hour conversation on Wordfest.com will be hosted by Wordfest's Creative Ringleader Shelley Youngblut. (The pre-show will begin at 6:50 PM MT.) It's free – and if you RSVP, we'll send you a reminder on the afternoon of the show, as well as our unique Digital Doggie Bag the next day with bonus extras sparked by the conversation.
*Note: If you purchase a copy of The Series through Owl’s Nest Books in Calgary, you can request a signed bookplate personalized by Ken Dryden.
We are grateful to Penguin Random House Canada for making it possible for us to connect you with this generous legend.
