The day after Christmas in 2005, fifteen-year-old Jane Creba was fatally shot on one of the busiest streets in Toronto. Both police and journalists reported the death as one of an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire of rival gangs. There was much more to the story.
Anita Arvast, author of What Killed Jane Creba: Rap, Race, and the Invention of a Gang War and Bloody Justice: The Truth Behind the Bandidos Massacre at Shedden, will talk about the process of writing non-fiction/true crime and what she discovered in researching this case in particular.
