Town of York Historical Society Annual Fall Author Series 2023: Adam Bunch
October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$22.63
Join us on October 19th for the second evening presentation of our Annual Fall Author’s Series!
Adam Bunch will present on his popular publication “The Toronto Book of the Dead” as he explores Toronto history through the lives lived and the deaths of those who made the ever-changing city their final resting place.
With morbid tales of war and plague, duels and executions, suicides and séances, Toronto’s past is filled with stories whose endings were anything but peaceful. In this book, Adam Bunch delves into these stories: from ancient First Nations burial mounds to the grisly murder of Toronto’s first lighthouse keeper; from the rise and fall of the city’s greatest Victorian baseball star to the final days of the world’s most notorious anarchist.
