Marshall, who studies religion, will make her free public presentation based on her latest book The Way of the Bachelor from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in Room 7000 at SFU Vancouver’s Harbour Centre campus. “Marshall provides an intimate and moving portrayal of the lives of these individuals, drawing on local newspapers, interviews and various archival material,” says Paul Crowe, David Lam Centre director.
