Since The Heart of Toronto was released two months ago, I’ve had the chance to talk about my research with some of Canada’s longest-running and hardest-working history podcasts.
I’m excited to see my research on Yonge Street and the remaking of downtown Toronto getting closer and closer to publication.
On June 22, I’m taking part in a roundtable discussion of the summer of 1977 in Toronto, and the impact a tragic murder had on politics, policing, and the future of downtown.
How do we create art about history? Can we make it powerful, relevant, and pedagogical?
