Book Reading & Lecture by author Ken McGoogan
Join us for this series of author reading and experience the latest in Maritime history and prose. We launch the series on Thursday, October 19th at 7:30pm with Ken McGoogan’s newly released, Dead Reckoning, The Untold Story of the Northwest Passage. With this book—his most ambitious yet—Ken McGoogan delivers a vivid, comprehensive recasting of Arctic-exploration history. Dead Reckoning challenges the conventional narrative, which emerged out of Victorian England and focused almost exclusively on Royal Navy officers. By integrating non-British and fur-trade explorers and, above all, Canada’s indigenous peoples, this work brings the story of Arctic discovery into the twenty-first century.
