After circumnavigating Ireland with Adventure Canada, historian and travel writer Ken McGoogan will sail with us in August Into the Northwest Passage. For the first time since 1999, he hopes to visit — and lead voyagers — to the spot where John Rae discovered the final link in the Northwest Passage.
Before heading north, Ken will participate in the Elora Writers’ Festival (May 27) in Fergus, Ontario, reading from his book How the Scots Invented Canada. On June 26, he will travel to Ottawa to give a keynote presentation to a meeting of the Sons of Scotland. And from July 16 to 20, he will teach an intensive non-fiction writing course at the University of Toronto Summer Writing School.
