Titles@Table40 with Charlotte Gray

As an auspicious beginning to the month of October, we will be hosting local author and historian (and Titles@Table40 favourite) Charlotte Gray on Sunday, October 6. Her forthcoming book, Murdered Midas: A Millionaire, His Gold Mine, and a Strange Death on an Island Paradise, takes readers on a Canadian true crime journey full of intrigue, greed, and bumbling investigators as it shines new light on the unsolved murder of the infamous Sir Harry Oakes. With deeply-set roots in the Niagara region, Oakes’ story is at once fascinating, unbelievable, and extraordinary, and we can’t wait to find out more when Charlotte pays us a visit in October!

Titles@Table40 with John Ivison

It’s almost September which means that our books and dinner series, Titles@Table40, is back for another season!

Kicking things off next month, local political columnist, John Ivison will be joining us on Sunday, September 22 to talk about his brand new political memoir, Trudeau: The Education of a Prime Minister. Having watched Trudeau evolve as a politician and a leader over the last number of years, Ivison provides readers with an in-depth, no-holds-barred account of how our current Prime Minister has in some cases lived up to, and in others fallen short of, the high expectations that came out of the Liberal Party’s 2015 election win. With another federal election just around the corner, this book (and event) couldn’t come at a better time!

Titles@Table40 with Monique Begin

We’re so excited to be kicking off a new series of Titles@Table40 dinners (and a brand new year) with local politician Monique Begin!

Elected to Parliament in 1972 as one of the first female MPs to hail from Quebec, Begin was not only a breath of fresh air in the House, but a trailblazing female politician! Spanning her life experiences from a childhood spent in Italy, France, and Portugal, through her days as a parliamentarian and Cabinet Minister, to her post-political life as a member of the academic world, Begin’s riveting memoir Ladies, Upstairs! is a wonderful, inspiring read!

“From Elizabeth Hay, one of Canada’s most beloved novelists, comes a startling and beautiful memoir about the drama of her parents’ end, and the longer drama of being their daughter.

In this courageous memoir, written with tough-minded candour, tenderness, and wit, Elizabeth Hay lays bare the exquisite agony of a family’s dynamics–entrenched favouritism, sibling rivalries, grievances that last for decades, genuine admiration, and enduring love. In the end, she reaches a more complete understanding of the most unforgettable characters she will ever know, the vivid giants in her life who were her parents.”
