Explore Toronto’s spooky side with award-winning storyteller Adam Bunch!
You can learn a lot about a city through the stories of the strange things said to lurk in its shadows. In four online lectures, this course will explore Toronto’s past through tales of phantoms, monsters and mythical beasts. Whether it’s the terrifying creature spotted in the tunnels beneath Cabbagetown, the sea serpent rumoured to live in the depths of Lake Ontario, or the unicorns hidden all over town, the supernatural stories told about our city illuminate the history of the place we call home.
The course will kick off on October 13 and run on Thursday nights for four weeks — but if you’re not free on any of those days, don’t worry. Adam will also record all his lectures and post them to a private page so you can watch and re-watch them anytime you like. Plus, if you are a paid subscriber to Adam’s amazing newsletter called “The Toronto History Weekly“, you’ll get 10% off on the course! If more than one person in your household would like to take the course, feel free to sit in on the lectures together — you only need to pay one fee per screen.
