Kick-starting the Eh List with Terry Fallis

March 16, 2011 | Jorge | Comments (2)

Terry Fallis The Eh List is back with a punch.  The fourth season of the Eh List at the Barbara Frum Library begins tomorrow on March 17 at 7 PM.  We are welcoming Terry Fallis, winner of the 2008 Stephen Leacock Award for Humour and the 2011 Canada Reads Award. 

Terry has an interesting story.  He began his professional career as a political strategist, working in support of honourable names like Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin and Robert Nixon.  After working as a political aide, Fallis left politics to apply his communication, consultative, and strategic skills in business including a stint with Hilton & Knowlton and the establishment of his co-owned business, Thornley Fallis. 

Terry’s attainment of joining Canada's leading literati is a tale in itself.  His first novel, The Best Laid Plans, was initially distributed as a podcast.  As it grew in popularity, Fallis self-published his novel and against all odds received recognition for it.  Podcasts work wonders, I am now convinced!  After success from his first novel, Fallis is back with The High Road, a continuation of a wickedly hilarious tale about an idealistic politician and his executive assistant trying to win the Canadian election.

If you want to find out why Canadians from across the country are relentlessly laughing to this tale, be sure to come out and visit the man that created it all.  See program details for more info or order yourself a copy from our collection.
