Shel's friend, Joe Thornley of Thornley Fallis in Toronto, is organizing the tour. The tour will take place on Third Tuesdays in September. (I guess this is a Twitter reference. I've heard of follow Fridays but nothing about Third Tuesdays.)
The Twitterville book launch will visit these five cities: Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. Check out the announcement by Thornley Fallis as well as registration information at http://propr.ca/2009/shel-israel-to-launch-twitterville-in-cross-canada-tour-of-third-tuesdays/
Just F.Y.I. the schedule is:
- September 13 Montreal
- September 14 Ottawa
- September 15 Toronto
- September 16 Calgary
- September 17 Vancouver
Cover of The Best Laid Planspublished this book in podcast form since he couldn't find a publisher. Later on his book was published and won the Stephen Leacock award for Humour. I was intrigued and borrowed the book. I read it and tweeted and blogged about my love for this book. I know Terry is hard on work on the next book. I can hardly wait.
Well, somehow or other, Terry discovered that I had written about his book in my blog. He commented on my blog post. (I was tickled pink since I am a novice blogger and didn't think anyone besides my classmates would read my blog.) I started to follow Terry on Twitter.
So today, I just sat up and said, "Wow" when I realized that Thornley Fallis (where Terry Fallis works at his day job) was organizing Shel Israel's book tour.
Too bad I live in Saskatoon. I would love to attend one of these book launch events.)
So, all you lucky folk who live in one of the five cities, check out the link (http://propr.ca/2009/shel-israel-to-launch-twitterville-in-cross-canada-tour-of-third-tuesdays/) and register for tickets. Tell them Ruth sent you.
