Join author Nancy Beal in conversation with Alex Tilley, founder of Tilley Endurables, as they discuss Beal’s book on Tilley’s life.

Alex Tilley, founder of Tilley Endurables, is an iconic Canadian businessman whose creative ads, entertaining customer testimonials and relentless pursuit of quality made his hat and travel clothing world-famous. Canada’s hatman will be at Muskoka Chautauqua, along with his wife, illustrious sculptor Hilary Clark Cole, and Nancy Beal, author of Alex’s biography. The three bonded over a common mission: to bring Alex’s fascinating life story to the world. Join this lively trio as they explore the various facets of Alex’s life and answer questions from the audience. Bring your Tilley Hat for Alex to sign and his biography, The Endurable Alex Tilley, will be available for purchase and signing by both the author and her subject.
