The Launch Week

March 30, 2008

As some of you may know, we have our book launch coming up this week. It will take place at Casa Loma, 1 Austin Terrace, in Toronto. It will begin at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, April 2. We are thrilled so many people have RSVP’ed, but, to tell you the truth, we are all a little nervous.

Nervous, perhaps, because this is the culmination of a three year project. One that’s consumed us, at times divided us and – thanks to the great participants we’ve had – often inspired us. Way back in February of ’05, we sat down for our first interview with none other than TV personality Valerie Pringle. Alex was pretty shaky during that encounter, being the first time he’d ever been on the question-asking side of an interview. But Valerie was generous with her time and gave some great answers. She has said she’ll attend the launch, which lends the event a nice piece of symmetry.

“…the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started…”

We are also lucky enough to have two (possibly three) of our most interesting features speaking at our event. Eddie Greenspan will regale us with the ups and downs of his start in the criminal justice field. Bruce Poon Tip will talk about founding his unique eco-tourism company, GAP Adventures. Come one, come all: it’s sure to be an interesting evening.
