YWCA Muskoka presents She Talks 2023: An Evening with Anna Maria Tremonti Wednesday April 5, 2023 7:30pm
A masterful storyteller, Anna Maria Tremonti delivers talks that touch the human spirit and captivate audiences. Listeners from around the world were privileged to listen to Tremonti‘s compelling interviews each & every day on Canada‘s most popular radio program, “The Current” for almost 2 decades. She has the gift of tackling everything from the politics of the day, to the changes that affect our society, to the stories of individuals whose personal journeys and traumas affect us all. Without a doubt, every listener has been consistently moved and inspired by Anna Maria‘s genuine approach to interviewing.
After 17 years at the helm and as a two-time Gemini Award winner, now Anna Maria is taking a leap into the world of digital communication with a new way of telling stories and sharing ideas, through original podcasts that will illuminate, challenge and surprise. She launched Welcome to Paradise a very personal podcast which showed that even though she‘s travelled to conflict zones, none were as immediately threatening as what she experienced at home. It‘s ‘a profoundly intimate portrait of a powerful woman confronting the source of tremendous pain and trauma and, remarkably, freeing herself from a life-long sense of shame.‘
Anna Maria is also a former foreign correspondent and war correspondent who spent close to a decade covered international affairs posted in Berlin, London, Jerusalem and Washington. Her ongoing coverage of major international stories includes the breakup of the former Soviet Union, the war in Bosnia, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the politics of the Arab world, Europe and the United States. She also has extensive experience covering Canadian federal and provincial politics.
This is a fundraising event for YWCA Muskoka and will support Muskoka-based programs that champion positive change for women, youth and gender diverse people.
