The 1934 Kidnapping of Ontario Beer Tycoon John Labatt

Susan Goldenberg

Labatt was the first important Canadian to be kidnapped. An international sensation. Many twists and turns, some of them bizarre. A wrong man convicted.

Susan is the author of “Snatched! The Peculiar Kidnapping of Beer Tycoon John Labatt.” A winner of the Canadian Author’s Award, she also has written eight other non-fiction books plus for Canadian and American publications including The New York Times, Dallas Morning News and Canada’s History Magazine. She is on the board of the North York Historical Society and writes an online column on North York heritage.
