About this Event

Join MISC and McGill-Queen’s University Press for a talk by Don Weekes on his new book, Picturing the Game: An Illustrated Story of Hockey on Thursday, February 29, 2024, 4 p.m. in Leacock 232.

Picturing the Game transports fans into the mischievous world of caricature through the rough drafts of hockey history by Bruce MacKinnon, Aislin, Serge Chapleau, Susan Dewar, Brian Gable, and many other talented artists. The book was a seven-year project, for which Weekes worked with numerous cartoonists, archivists, and curators (including those at McGill University) across the country to ferret out the best editorial cartoons and sports illustrations over the past 150 years.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A, reception, and book signing. MQUP will be selling copies of the book during the event.

To learn more about the book, visit the MQUP website (https://www.mqup.ca/picturing-the-game-products-9780228018735.php) and the book website (https://picturingthegame.ca/).

Don Weekes is a Montreal hockey writer and researcher. He has written more than 30 hockey books for Greystone Books in Vancouver and Firefly Books in Toronto, including his work with the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Don spent 31 years in media as a radio and television producer and director at Standard Broadcasting and CTV. He is a member of the Society for International Hockey Research. He shoots left. And if you ask him about the Canadiens’ rebuild he will say: “Like most things in sport (and life), their retool is a work in progress. So don’t lose faith just yet.”
