MacGregor explores the enduring mystery of Tom Thomson and the woman who loved him. MacGregor is able to prove that the woman Thomson was engaged to was wrongly identified for the better part of a century and able to show, for the first time, the real woman he was engaged to through forensic art and photo compilations. This presentation is very powerful and has the ability to hold a crowd spellbound!
This Country: An Exploration of Canada
In this presentation, MacGregor explores Canada. MacGregor knows the country intimately and, in all likelihood, has seen more of it than almost any living Canadian.
MacGregor discusses the importance of the outdoors, the landscape, to Canadians, and why “escape” is as much a part of the Canadian psyche as the rivers and railroads.
The Screech Owls were created by MacGregor to attract “the reluctant reader,” – boys who will not pick up books. The Screech Owls, a peewee hockey team that solves everything from the theft of the Stanley Cup to murders, is Canada’s most popular current series.
The National Game
MacGregor has been hailed by the Globe and Mail as “Canada’s best hockey writer.” Author of several classics in the game, MacGregor’s love of the national game is infectious.
