The Great VIA-Rail Book-Launch Extravaganza

OK, that may be putting it a bit grandly.

But yes, come October, we propose to launch 50 Canadians Who Changed the World with a cross-Canada, multi-event, book-launch extravaganza.

HarperCollins Canada and VIA Rail are co-operating to make this expedition happen.

Starting from Toronto on October 12, accompanied by my wife, Sheena, and detraining as warranted along the way, I will travel first to the West Coast (Oct. 12 to 30), then to Halifax (Nov. 8 to 13), with a Toronto launch in-between.

We’re already booked to stage a number of events — at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg and Saskatoon, for example, and at Paragraphe Books in Montreal.

Meanwhile, at head office, Lauren Morocco is working on this night and day. If you want to join the fun, she remains open to pitches and proposals. Lauren dot Morocco at harpercollins dot com. All aboard!
