Charlotte Gray News


I've never been disappointed in listening to noted Ottawa creative historical non-fiction author Charlotte Gray. That was true again on Wednesday evening when she spoke to Heritage Ottawa about her craft and where she defines its bounds using for illustration the experience of her last and next books.

Along the way we learned that her last book, Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike is being turned into a TV mini-series for the Discovery Channel with shooting to start in Northern Alberta in March.

Her next book, due to appear in September, is Carrie: The Maid Who Shot a Massey which explores the 8 February 1915 murder of Bert, a member of the Massey family by his domestic servant, the subsequent trial, and the surprise verdict

There was a brief item about the Massey muder in Torontoist last Saturday.
