Part of The Canada 150 Lecture Series: The Making of Canada
The Making of Canada Lecture Series marks the 150th Anniversary of Confederation and the birth of Canada in 1867.
Christopher Moore has been called Canada's most versatile writer of history. He's a Toronto-based writer who has been presenting Canadian history to non-specialist audiences through many media for 20 years.
Moore's books include "1867: How the Fathers Made a Deal", which Dalton Camp called "just about the best book on our history I've ever read." He wrote the 1999 photo-history best-seller "Canada: Our Century" with Mark Kingwell. He helped create the best-selling children's history "The Story of Canada". His first book, "Louisbourg Portraits: Life in An Eighteenth Century Garrison Town", won the Governor General's Award in non-fiction. In 2011 "From Then to Now: A Short History of the World", won another GG, this time in Children's Literature.
Moore is a full-time writer; his other writing includes magazine essays, a weblog, columns, film scripts, radio documentaries, guidebooks, reference works, and computer simulations. Reviewers call Christopher Moore "a historian who always writes with grace and intelligence," and "obviously no slave to political correctness."
