AVONMORE — The SDG Library proudly extends an invitation to the public to attend its 2018 ‘SDG Reads’ Final Author Event. This event will be held on Thursday, October 18 at 6:00 p.m. at North Stormont Place, 16299 Fairview Drive, Avonmore. Please note that this is a ticketed event – tickets may be requested at any of the Library’s 15 branches or at its Administration office in Cornwall.
Hailed as the largest literary event in Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, ‘SDG Reads’ encourages everyone in the United Counties to read the same book and attend an event with that book’s author. To celebrate its fourth year, SDG Reads has highlighted renowned Canadian author, Terry Fallis and his 2017 novel, One Brother Shy.
Terry Fallis is the co-founder of Thornley Fallis, a communications consulting agency with offices in Ottawa and Toronto. He is also the author of six national bestsellers, including One Brother Shy, Poles Apart and No Relation. His debut novel, The Best Laid Plans, won the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. It was also dubbed the 2011 winner of CBC’s ‘Canada Reads’ as the “essential Canadian novel of the decade”. In 2014, The Best Laid Plans was the inspiration behind a six-part television miniseries on CBC, and in 2015 it was turned into a popular stage musical in Vancouver.
Terry has also created and co-hosted the well-liked podcast, Inside PR. Acclaimed as one of Canada’s top humourists, Terry lives with his wife and two sons in Toronto.
