Christopher Moore
BIO
Biography

Christopher Moore was honoured with life membership in the Union in 2019. He has been called Canada's most versatile writer of history. He is the author of many books, twice a winner of the Governor General's Literary Award, a contributing editor for Canada's History magazine, and the creator of blog posts, radio documentaries, guidebooks, educational software, and reference works on Canadian topics. He has been called "an historian who always writes with grace and intelligence" (Michael Bliss, The Beaver), "a wonderful popular historian" (John Fraser, National Post), and "obviously no slave to political correctness" (Jeffrey Simpson, Globe and Mail). Dalton Camp called 1867 "just about the best book on our history I've ever read." Moore was national chair of the Writers' Union of Canada in 1999-2000 and was a director of Access Copyright, the Canadian copyright licensing collective, from 2001 to 2007. He lives in Toronto with his wife Louise. He comments on historical topics and national issues, and speaks to audiences across the country.
