It began as rumours. Warnings about bad dates with a Canadian celebrity. Then superstar CBC broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi revealed his interest in “rough sex” in a long Facebook post, and a scandal descended on the radio host. What the public did not know was that months before Ghomeshi’s emotional post, Toronto Star journalist Kevin Donovan was quietly pursuing serious allegations against him.
Join Kevin Donovan, author of the national bestseller Secret Life: The Jian Ghomeshi Investigation, for a thought-provoking discussion of the landmark Ghomeshi exposé that sparked a nation-wide discussion on sexual assault, the cult of celebrity, and the politics of power and gender in the workplace. This “in conversation” event is co-sponsored by the School of Journalism and the MFA in Creative Nonfiction Program at the University of King’s College.
