True Crime Stories: A Dialogue


Wed Nov 13, 2019
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
60 mins


Toronto Reference Library

Lorna Poplak, Lee Mellor and James Dubro appear in conversation for a panel discussion about writing true-crime.

Hear about the real-life criminal cases that influenced their books and whether (or not) justice was served. In this gripping discussion, the authors will detail what it's like to write about the dark side of life and what attracts them to the true-crime genre.

The panel will be moderated by Toronto-based true-crime writer Nate Hendley (author of The Boy on the Bicycle: A Forgotten Case of Wrongful Conviction in Toronto, which examines the story of Ron Moffatt, who was wrongly convicted of murder at age 14 in Toronto, in 1956).

This event is free, and no registration is needed to attend.

This event is part of the eh List series at Toronto Public Library, where we present conversations on Canadian literature and culture with award-winning authors, poets, journalists and exciting new voices.
