Swiss Watching: Diccon Bewes lecture at the Toronto Reference Library @ Toronto Reference Library - Beeton Auditorium
Aug 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Swiss Club Toronto is honoured to partner with the Toronto Public Library in hosting a lecture by Diccon Bewes, author of “Swiss Watching” and “Slow Train to Switzerland“.

Save the date! The lecture will be held on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 7pm at the Beeton Auditorium, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St. More information is forthcoming.

Living in the land of milk and money

An outsider on the inside. For the last eight years, Diccon Bewes has been exploring Switzerland and writing about the places, the people, the trains and the chocolate. He’s become the accidental expat expert and in this humorous but insightful talk he’ll share some of his observations about Swiss life. From small talk to Sunday walks, he’ll show that there’s more to Switzerland than banks and skis, and reveal the true meaning of Swissness.

Diccon is a British travel writer and chocolate lover who has lived in Bern for the past 13 years. His first book, Swiss Watching, became a No1 bestseller and he has since written four more books about Switzerland.

After the talk there will be the chance to buy signed copies of Diccon’s books, and refreshments will be served.
