The Missing Millionaire

Toronto Branch OGS's monthly meeting for May, open to all on Zoom, will take place on Monday 25 May beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time).

Journalist Katie Daubs will tell about researching the mysterious disappearance of a Toronto theatre mogul in 1919 for her recently-published book The Missing Millionaire... Ambrose Small, and the resources she drew on to create a rich portrait of life in the city a century ago.  It's a cold case tale that is stranger than fiction!

In addition there's a short presentation by Michael Nettleton titled What will you find at the House of Industry?
Find out more.

I have just read Michael Ondaatje's In the Skin of a Lion, a classic I always hoped to read. This was made possible through a neighbourhood book exchange. It deals, in great part, with a fictionalized account of the disappearance of Ambrose Small, so it will be interesting to note what this new book has to say.
