The award-winning author of ten books, Ken McGoogan is best known for Fatal Passage: The Untold Story of John Rae, the Arctic Explorer Who Discovered the Fate of Franklin. That work won literary awards in Canada and the United States, and became the basis of an acclaimed docudrama called Passage (BBC Scotland). Ken recently published How the Scots Invented Canada, a Canadian bestseller. He writes a column for Canada’s History magazine and teaches an online writing course course through the University of Toronto. Last August, he revisited the location in the High Arctic where, in 1999, he erected a plaque to mark the spot where Scottish explorer John Rae discovered the final link in the Northwest Passage.
