Past Event: Welcome to 2021! Tune in to our upcoming Zoom meeting on February 4th at 7 PM, featuring author Ted Glenn:

In the spring of 1870, two reporters set off from Toronto to cover one of the biggest stories in Canadian history: Colonel Garnet Wolseley’s 1870 Expedition to Red River. Over the course of six months, the Daily Telegraph‘s Robert Cunningham and the Globe’s Molyneux St. John brought readers along as they paddled and portaged alongside the expedition’s 1100 troops and 400 voyageurs and guides from the shores of Lake Superior through the wilderness of northern Ontario to heart of the rebellion at Fort Garry.

But that’s not the whole story. Buried well below the fold was the fact St. John’s wife – the international burlesque star Kate Ranoe – accompanied him and the expedition all the way to Red River. And not just as an adventurer: owing to an accident early on, Ranoe ended up ghost-writing many of St. John’s stories.

In this presentation, Ted Glenn tells the remarkable story of two reporters and one extraordinary woman as they journey to Red River with Colonel Garnet Wolseley and his Expeditionary Force.
