Algonquin Reads 2012-2013

This year we are reading, The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis. This story is set in Ottawa and is a very humourous look at politics.   Even if you don't like politics, you will love this book!

We are getting ready to launch a number of events for Algonquin Reads throughout the school year, so get your copy now at Connections: The Campus Store, or borrow it from the Library (LRC), available at the Woodroffe and Perth Campuses and through interlibrary loan.  We hope to get as many people at Algonquin College as possible reading this book!

Leave us your comments of what you think of this year's book, or answer our poll at the right side of this page!

Happy Reading!
