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: With the election just two weeks off, Daniel hunkers down at Liberal Party headquarters with other campaign managers and staffers for a progress report. His riding numbers are, as expected, dismal. He checks in with Muriel — who gives him a pep talk about the campaign and, encouragingly, Lindsay — and with Angus, who's about to take off for Papau New Guinea.
