Our Hero goes public on Franklin, the Scots, and the Irish
The hue and cry is deafening. Where can we see Our Hero? Where is he appearing next?
Last night, Ken entertained the Canadian chapter of The Explorers Club. He talked about Chasing John Franklin into the Northwest Passage. You missed that? Not to worry.
On the evening of March 4, Ken will give a presentation at the Badminton and Racquet Club in Toronto. This time, he'll talk about How The Scots Invented Canada and, for the first time ever, preview Celtic Lightning: How the Scots and the Irish / Created a Canadian Nation. He treats Oscar Wilde and Flora MacDonald in that book, which will appear this fall courtesy of Patrick Crean Editions / Harper Collins Canada. Then, on March 25, while spending a week in Calgary as writer-in-residence at Mount Royal University, Ken will go public about the Franklin expedition and the Scots and the Irish in Our Story Begins in Calgary, which would appear to be shaping up as a tour-de-force.
