Author Reading - Terry Fallis - Sunday March 27th

Award winning author Terry Fallis will be reading at the Keshen Goodman Public Library this afternoon. Sunday, March 27th @2:30.

Terry has won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, as well as being selected as the winner of CBC's Canada Reads 2011. This event is sure to be a fun time - and it is rather timely with a federal election looming.

So why not come on out to Clayton Park and settle in for an enjoyable afternoon of Canadian political humour at it finest. All are welcome!

The Best Laid Plans

The Best Laid Plans is the winner of this year’s CBC Canada Reads contest. The book is about a burnt-out political aide who quits just before an election, but is forced to run a hopeless campaign on the way out. He makes a deal a crusty old Scot, Angus McLintock, an engineering professor who will do anything to avoid teaching English to engineers - to let his name stand in the election. A great scandal blows away his opponent, and to their horror, Angus is elected. He decides to see what good an honest M.P., who doesn’t care about being re-elected, can do in Parliament. The results are hilarious - with chess, a hovercraft, and the love of a good woman thrown in, this very funny book has something for everyone.
