“Our Hope for the Future Lies in Remembering the Past”: Niagara Holocaust Memorials

Author Night: R.L. Manson and Tady Saczkowski of “Two Men, One River”

Two Men, One River takes the reader back a century in the Niagara Region – the way it really was – and tells a story of the way things might have turned out with the absolute unbridling of Nikola Tesla, Sir Adam Beck, and King Camp Gillette by two very ambitious but completely opposite businessmen. Bob Manson (author) is a retired professional engineer who worked in aviation for 35 years, and Tady Saczkowski (researcher) is a Brock University graduate who retired early to spend more time exploring the Region and researching its rich history. Bob and Tady will be speaking about their book: the real-life 1918 Niagara settings and historical figures, the premise of the story, how the project began, and the extensive research that was involved.
