Michael Harris: Party of One

Michael Harris, AuthorOn Thursday night, Canadian political writer Michael Harris stopped by the Heuther Hotel in Waterloo as part of his cross Canada book tour for his new book, “Party of One.”

Although I’ve begun reading Michael’s book, and it is very well written (I assumed it would be, since his ipolitics articles always are) but I’m not done yet.   The problem, Betsey and I agreed, is that the subject matter is depressing.

While I wasn’t clever enough to bring my copy along to dinner, Betsey was.  And her copy was the hit of the evening.  Michael broke when he saw she has covered over the photo of Mr. Harper on the dust jacket.

On Saturday, Michael will be speaking at the Registry Theatre in Kitchener (the free event is officially all booked, but if you’re really interested, you can check at the door Saturday in case of cancellation.

This leg of the tour is sponsored by Fair Vote Canada – Waterloo Region Chapter and Wordsworth Books.  If you missed him on Saturday, you might be able to catch Michael on Sunday, May 19th, 2015, when he will be speaking in Guelph.

Fair Vote Canada’s Waterloo Region Chapter and Wordsworth Books welcome maverick political journalist Michael Harris to Waterloo Region on April 18th, 2015.

Mr. Harris will be speaking to what will certainly be a sold out crowd at the Registry Theatre in Kitchener.  There weren’t many tickets left when I took a peek at the Eventbright site yesterday, so if you want to go, you’d best book yours before they are all gone.  Tickets are free but required to keep attendance within the seating limitation of the venue.

I have not yet read the book, but it came highly recommended by the panel at the Guelph Robocalls Town Hall.   I’ll be picking up my copy from one of the event sponsors, Wordsworth Books next time I’m uptown.
