That’s what Simon & Schuster says about Mark Bulgutch. But let’s back up a little.
Mark worked most of his career as a journalist behind-the-scenes – ‘senior editor’,
‘senior executive producer’ – and this doesn’t mention his role in producing the CBC
Olympic coverage for several years. His bestseller may be Extraordinary Canadians, but his tour-de-force is his book That’s Why I’m a Journalist. His extensive knowledge of the many contributors to his collection on Journalism and the familiarity of the names in the book make this book a special read.

Mark will be speaking on his books with a special reference to That’s Why I’m a
Journalist. Don’t miss this talk by an important contributor to what can only be called documentary history and a great read. And, by the way, Mark lives here in North York.
