Fifty Canadians Who Changed the World

Hurrah! Let the bells ring out for Fifty Canadians Who Changed the World. Today I sent the final, edited typescript to the managing editor at HarperCollins Canada. Substantive edit: done. Copy edit: done. Word count: 88,527.  Publication date: this September. At left, a photo of Our Hero that evokes his jubilation. Otherwise, it has nothing to do with the forthcoming book. (For more on the photo, pick up the April-May issue of Canada's History magazine and refer to an article called "Return to Rae Strait.") [Photo credit: Sheena Fraser McGoogan].

Congratulations. As someone who took 34 years to get my largest book published and two gruelling years on the substantial and copy edit of it, I know you must be almost as exhausted as exhilarated. I also know what a great achievement it is. I look forward to reading it.

Before turning mainly to books about arctic exploration and Canadian history, Ken McGoogan worked for two decades as a journalist at major dailies in Toronto, Calgary, and Montreal. He teaches creative nonfiction writing through the University of Toronto and in the MFA program at King’s College in Halifax. Ken served as chair of the Public Lending Right Commission, has written recently for Canada’s History, Canadian Geographic, and Maclean’s, and sails with Adventure Canada as a resource historian. Based in Toronto, he has given talks and presentations across Canada, from Dawson City to Dartmouth, and in places as different as Edinburgh, Melbourne, and Hobart.
