Booked! Will Ferguson Tonight

booked! Will Ferguson at The Fernie Heritage Library

My own introduction to Will Ferguson was when I read Happiness in 2001, a novel about what would happen if everyone became happy – and it’s not as blissful as you might think – and then I was flipping through his book How To Be Canadian in a downtown Vancouver bookstore and had one of those laugh out loud moments and ended up buying it 2 minutes later. It’s interesting how you can have a history with someone you’ve never met.

Now he’s coming to Fernie to talk about his book 419. 419 doesn’t sound like a comedy but perhaps those who know how to laugh are in tune with all those other emotions that make a story more human. I haven’t read it yet, though. Come out and see him at The Fernie Heritage Library tonight at 7 pm – the last of the Booked! Fernie Writers’ Series.
