Visiting authors enhance village’s cultural element

BAYFIELD — Award winning author Terry Fallis received an enthusiastic welcome back to Bayfield on Oct. 25.

According to Mary Brown, owner of The Village Bookshop and event host, “The full house at the Bayfield Town Hall enjoyed listening to Terry discuss and read from his new book, “Up and Down”. A lively question and answer period followed.”

Fallis’ first novel, political satire “The Best Laid Plans”, won the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and Canada Reads 2011. “The High Road” was the book’s sequel.

“His latest book takes on the public relations industry, and, of all things, the space program. All three are terrific reads!” said Brown. Autographed copies are available at The Village Bookshop.

Hot on the heels of Fallis’ visit, the book shop has arranged for yet another author visit.

Acclaimed Canadian author Susan Swan will be reading from her latest novel, “The Western Light”, at The Village Bookshop on Nov. 9 following the tree lighting at Clan Gregor Square at 7:30 p.m.

Local playwright Paul Ciufo will interview Swan following her reading. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
