The organizing committee of the Ontario Writers’ Conference is delighted to announce that the talented Terry Fallis will be our 2014 closing speaker!
Terry Fallis is the author of The Best Laid Plans, winner of the 2008 Leacock Medal for Humour, and was crowned the 2011 CBC Canada Reads “essential Canadian novel of the decade.” A six-part television miniseries based on the novel aired on CBC in early 2014. All three of his novels are published by McClelland & Stewart. The Canadian Booksellers Association named Terry Fallis the winner of the 2013 Libris Award as Author of the Year. M&S will publish his fourth novel, No Relation, in May 2014.
Mr. Fallis will bring a unique twist to the end of the two-day conference. He is scheduled to take the podium at 5pm.
