CBC Books is all about conversation and community, which is why we want to explore the Canada Reads 2011 champion, The Best Laid Plans, chapter by chapter. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will release an audio version of one chapter (generously recorded and given to us by author Terry Fallis) as well as pose discussion questions. You can join the conversation by commenting on the blog posts right here on the Canada Reads site or by joining the discussion group for The Best Laid Plans in the CBC Books Community.
The set-up: In Chapter 3, Daniel and Angus McLintock meet with the dean of engineering, Roland Rumplun. Angus wants to get the paperwork underway for Daniel to teach English for Engineers in his stead. At first the dean refuses, but Angus has leverage (a serious misdeed from the dean's past) and gets his way. That part of their bargain completed, Daniel visits Muriel and puts Angus forward as the Liberal candidate in the Cumberland-Prescott riding. Mission completed. Daniel has reason to be even more pleased when Lindsay, Muriel's granddaughter, turns up.
