Whistler Reads: 419 by Will Ferguson

abstract: Our next Whistler Reads book discussion will be held on October 19th, 8pm at the Fairmont Chateau Hotel, Whistler with Giller Prize winning author of 2012, Will Ferguson whose book 419: A Novel, (Random House 2012) "...a provocative tale of an email scam and a woman who sets out on a wide-ranging search for those she believes responsible for her father's death." It is a continuation of Will's first novel Spanish Fly which was a historical fiction about con artists in the 1930s. Ferguson lives in Calgary and he's a three-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal (for humour). This will prove to be a delightful discussion as part of the Whistler Readers and Writers Festival Oct 18-21st, because CBC's own award winning broadcaster, Jian Ghomeshi will be leading the discussion, essentially - two celebrities for the price of one! Tickets just $25. Whistler Reads members are encouraged to read the book in advance, attend in hoards and enjoy this special night at what promises to be the best Whistler Readers and Writers Festival event yet. Don't miss this star-studded literary-packed festival. Congrats Stella and Vicious Circle. Stay tuned for more information here at the festival website where you can purchase tickets and plan your weekend. Whistler is at its glory in the mantle of fall foliage. Come savour these last moments of the season before another ski and snowboard season kicks-in (annually) on American Thanksgiving. See you there!Paula Shackleton
