Ocean-to-Ocean Book Tour Extravaganza Heads East

Part Two of
the journey begins in Toronto next Thursday (Nov. 7). Yes, we’re talking The VIA-Rail, 50 Canadians, Ocean-to-Ocean Book Tour Extravaganza. We’re promoting 50 Canadians Who Changed the World by
So far,
we have whistle-stopped through Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Canmore, Banff,
Jasper, and Vancouver. Now, we travel east: Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and
Halifax. If you
are reading this, can I hope to see you one of these events?

— Ottawa: Nov. 8: Books on Beechwood (7-9 p.m.).

— Montreal: Nov. 10: Paragraphe Books & Breakfast. Our Hero
appears with Don Newman and Mark Abley. Host Anne Lagace-Dowson (10 a.m.) See here.


— Halifax (Dartmouth): Nov. 12: Alderney Gate Library (7 p.m.)

While in
Halifax, we complement the gesture captured on the left. We will visit Point Pleasant Park and, carrying a copy of 50 Canadians, wade into the Atlantic,
thereby drawing the Extravaganza to a fitting close.
For the
rest, the big contest — sponsored by HarperCollins Canada and VIA-Rail — is attracting lots of interest. No wonder: first prize is a copy of my new
book. Second prize, a $5,000 travel voucher from VIA-Rail. Or wait: maybe that is the
other way round? Read all about it by clicking here.
