Gordon Goldsborough – Abandoned Manitoba
*Save the date!* Dr. Goldsborough will be coming to Glenboro on November 16th to present on his third book of the series. Watch for more detail. “Based on a regular feature on CBC’s Weekend Morning Show, the book “Abandoned Manitoba” was a runaway success in 2016, becoming the year’s top-selling, non-fiction book in Manitoba. Its sequel “More Abandoned Manitoba” was the 2019 McNally Robinson Book of the Year. In the final book of the trilogy “On the Road to Abandoned Manitoba”, scientist-historian Gordon Goldsborough hits the road again in search of adventure and little-known stories from Manitoba’s past. Among the places he visits are underground radiation monitoring posts from the Cold War, a remote hydroelectric generating station, cruise ships on the Red River, the original route of the Trans-Canada Highway, and much more.”
