During the tour you will visit five sites that allow you to recall his career during this defining period.
The tour occurs on his 100th birthday and is meant to be a tribute to a man who made Peterborough interesting to others.
Find out about this enigmatic man on an all-day tour of five sites which were important in his life while he was in Peterborough on his exact birthday, August 28, 2013.
Davies was the publisher of the Peterborough Examiner and a major player in the theatre life of this area.
One of the participants, Ruth Kuchinad, resident of Selwyn Township says, “I am looking forward to learning about this Canadian literary giant because I never knew he had a Peterborough connection.”
