Join us for an engaging afternoon with historians from York University in Toronto, Boyd Cothran and Adrian Schubert, as they introduce their latest book, ‘The Edwin Fox’. The book delves into the unique role of Edwin Fox and how an ordinary sailing ship connected the world in the age of globalisation from 1850-1914. This event will feature a book reading, Q&A session with the audience, and a book signing.
