Linden MacIntyre: Making (Up) History Lecture

Linden MacIntyre: Making (Up) History

Linden MacIntyre, award-winning writer and journalist (and STU honorary degree recipient, 2003), will deliver the 2019-20 Annual History Lecture at St. Thomas University on Thursday, January 23 at 7 pm in the Kinsella Auditorium.

In his lecture, “Making (Up) History,” he will walk listeners through his transition from journalism to fiction, then memoir, and, finally, to a hybrid specimen of memoir and history. In so doing he will discuss a wide spectrum of storytelling: history, memoir, fiction, and flat out lying.

A distinguished journalist who spent twenty-four years as co-host of the fifth estate, Linden MacIntyre is also a writer of fiction and nonfiction. His novels include The Bishop’s Man, which won the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and The Only Café. His “boyhood memoir” titled Causeway: A Passage from Innocence, won the Edna Staebler Award for creative nonfiction. His most recent book is The Wake: The Deadly Legacy of a Newfoundland Tsunami (2019), a “true story” of the November 1929 tsunami and its legacy.
