Canadian True Crime: Lyndsie Bourgon & Jon S. Dellandrea
October 01 at 8pm
Investigative journalism shines a light on complex thieving stories in Canada, in the newest true crime books by Lyndsie Bourgon and Jon S. Dellandrea. In thrilling, live conversation about her book Tree Thieves, Bourgon will expose North American’s billion-dollar timber black market, and how its history intersects with class, culture, environmentalism and Indigenous theft even today. Dellandrea will chronicle the forgotten trial of the largest fraud case in Canadian history, involving forgeries of the art of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven in the 1960s, and the exploited artist William Firth Macgregor (whose work may still be in homes today, under a different name), as outlined in his book The Great Canadian Art Fraud Case.
