My colleague Shona Cook arranged an impressive media schedule for Timothy Snyder, including a stop in Toronto, for his new book BLOODLANDS: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin. While she did all the hard work, I had the pleasure of meeting him in Toronto and sitting in on his Munk School of Global Affairs Talk at U of T. It was perhaps one of the best lectures I’ve ever attended — intelligent, informative and interesting (he barely once looked at notes). It was quite moving, too, as Snyder included a few personal anecdotes from those who suffered through the atrocities.

The media coverage included a full-page excerpt and an in-depth interview in the National Post; a feature interview on CBC Radio’s Ideas; a Maclean’s review, plus TV interviews with both the Ukranian and Polish OMNI programs.
