Special Order—Subject to Availability

The latest book by Canada's Trivia Guys is an entertaining where-are-they-now look at the fate of some 100 celebrities, newsmakers, and significant artifacts from this country's past. Lake Ontario swimmer Marilyn Bell, CFL legend Russ Jackson, Canada's first automobile, and Roger Woodward, a boy who survived the waters of Niagara Falls more than 40 years ago, are among those tracked down. Long after making headlines or burrowing their way into our collective consciousness, these Canadian icons have travelled different roads or in some cases kept more quietly to the path that gained them attention in the first place.

Kearney and Ray spice up their stories with dozens of fascinating facts. With website links to further information, this book is a great resource to learn more about Canada's heritage.

Mark Kearney is an award-winning journalist who has worked as a reporter, public relations specialist, and freelance writer. He has taught writing at the University of Western Ontario for the past 15 years. Kearney lives in London.
