Gregory Klages, author of "The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson: Separating Fact from Fiction", will give a talk and sign copies of his book.

Part of the 'Author Talks' series at Collingwood Public Library

 

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the death of the renowned Canadian landscape painter, The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson is an authoritative review of first-hand testimony and archival records about Thomson’s tragic demise.

Reviews:

“...a meticulous analysis of both the documents related to the artist’s death and the sources used by authors to support theories about how Thomson met his fate… a timely and valuable contribution to the literature.”

            Meaghan Beaton (Western Washington University), Canadian Historical Review

 

"The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson stands as both a conscientious case study and a larger investigation into what history can and cannot do."

             Alison Gillmor, Canada’s History
