Harry S. Truman’s relationship with Canada has received limited attention from historians. But the 33rd president’s appreciation for our “good neighbor to the north” resulted in significant political and economic advances on both sides of the border while fostering an alliance that underpinned America’s global engagement.

Approaching the 70th anniversary of Truman’s move into the White House in April 1945, Roy Norton — the new Canadian consul general to Illinois, Missouri, and Wisconsin — discusses key elements from the period 1945-53 that saw Canada attain its ongoing status as America’s best customer and closest ally.

Kansas City novelist and Writers at Work series organizer Whitney Terrell sits down with author Elizabeth Gaffney for a public conversation about her new book. When the World Was Young follows the country’s changing physical and emotional landscape after World War II through the eyes and experiences of a girl growing up in Brooklyn, New York, which also happens to be Gaffney’s place of residence.

The presentation also spotlights the Brooklyn-based literary magazine A Public Space, for which Gaffney is editor-at-large, and the publication’s new mentoring program for emerging writers.
