Former NHLer Theo Fleury presents the Dr. Dan Andreae Distinguished Presidential Lecture Series at Laurentian University Jan. 24.
His lecture will be entitled “The Power of Me Too.”
Fleury co-wrote “Playing with Fire,” a best-selling autobiography released in October 2009, in which he revealed that he had been sexually abused by former coach Graham James.
The Canadian hockey player filed a criminal complaint against James, who subsequently pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault. Fleury has since become an advocate for sexual abuse victims and developed a career as a public speaker. He was a recipient of the Indspire Award in the sports category in 2013.
The lecture gets underway at 7:30 p.m. at the Laurentian University Fraser Auditorium. Register for free tickets online here.
