Toronto Gone Wild

Untold Stories of Toronto's Waterfront: A Talk with Author M. Jane Fairburn

NOTICE: This event has passed.

Join us for a talk with author M. Jane Fairburn

Co-presented by Museum of Toronto and Spacing Store

M. Jane Fairburn, author of Along the Shore: Rediscovering Toronto’s Waterfront Heritage, will lead us through the many stories of life along Toronto’s waterfront throughout the ages.

Four Toronto communities share an intimate connection with the waters of Lake Ontario: the Scarborough shore, the Beach, the Island, and the Lakeshore.

What can we learn about the city —and ourselves — when we explore stories of the people, landscapes, and geography of these areas? When examined, these stories reveal a rich heritage that has gone largely unrecognized and is for the most part forgotten.

Just like her book, this talk will bring to life the stories, many of which have never been told, of the lakefront and the people who have inhabited these special places.
