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 ReckoningThe 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.
