Literary Tourist Audio: Terry Fallis on Parliament Hill

While researching an article on Literary Tourism for an upcoming issue of Ontario magazine, I got to meet and greet some stellar Canadian authors; we hit sites across the province that feature, variously, in their works. Here, it’s Terry Fallis,

with photographer Tim Campbell

and his novel The Best Laid Plans. I got together with Terry on Parliament Hill, right next to the newly refurbished

parliamentary library,

to talk about how its ‘hallowed hallways’ informed the writing of his book; about how readers might gain insight into its characters and plot by visiting the ‘Hill’, and how this ‘place’ plays an important role in Canadian political life, stabilizing democracy and inspiring hope for a better future.  Please listen here to our conversation.
