If you and your book club want to tackle The Best Laid Plans, now is your chance! CBC Books is running a contest for book clubs across the country: win a visit from author Terry Fallis. The lucky book club will also win copies of The Best Laid Plans. To enter, tell us why Terry Fallis should visit YOUR club in our CBC Books discussion group.
Terry Fallis has been on quite the ride. From self-published author to Canada Reads champion, his literary journey has been unlike any other.
And so The National wanted to know what it was like to spend a day in the life of Terry Fallis.
Terry's debut novel, The Best Laid Plans, was declared the Canada Reads 2011 victor on Wednesday, February 9. On Thursday, February 10, The National followed him from his interview on Q (alongside his book's Canada Reads defender, Ali Velshi) to meetings with clients for his day job, then to his home and to the Book Lover's Ball that evening. It was a fast-paced mix of glam and grunt work.
