Air Farce book takes off today in Toronto
I also spoke with Alan Park, Penelope Corrin, director Perry Rosemond, Brian Robertson and others in preparing for my contributions to the book. It was a great privilege to get to meet and speak with everyone involved, and I thank Don and the late, great Roger Abbott for the opportunity.
I also approached Rick Mercer, Brent Butt, Allan Hawco, Steve Smith and Lloyd Robertson for comments for the back of the book jacket. Their instant, eager and heartfelt responses show you just how loved Ferguson, Abbott and Air Farce are in this business.
There is a celebration of the launch today at noon at the CBC atrium at 250 Front St. in Toronto, where Ferguson, Goy and others will be on hand and books will be available for just $22, including tax! May the Farce be with you!
