Former governor general Adrienne Clarkson will be in attendance during the ceremony taking place June 4 at 11 a.m.

Both Clarkson and Saul will be available for a question and answer period at the Philosopher's Cafe located in the resort ballroom, beginning at 7:15 p.m. A reception will take place earlier in the evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available for each evening event and the proceeds will go toward three projects including the Penticton Rotary Club Community Kitchen, The Raise a Reader Program and Poets Essayists Novelists International.
