Event description

Description

Two award-winning journalists talk about their recent books. Alexandra Shimo is a former editor for Macleans. This human rights story is set in Northern Ontario at a remote fly-in First Nations community. Kevin Donovan writes for the Toronto Star, and he broke the high profile Jian Ghomeshi sex scandal that led to the investigation and widely followed trial of the CBC's most popular program host of "Q". Learn about the challenges each faced in covering these stories, the questions their books ask, and the issues the audience will help to debate. Their books: INVISIBLE NORTH: The Search for Answers on a Troubled Reserve (Dundurn), shortlisted for the National Nonfiction Award 2016, and SECRET LIFE: The Jian Ghomeshi Investigation (Goose Lane Editions) Signed Books avail for sale. THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT. Purchase tickets early.
