"Mark Leiren-Young is a natural storyteller, a peer of writers like Stephen Leacock, W.O. Mitchell, Jack Douglas and W.P. Kinsella: quietly hilarious, effortlessly moving, and always surprising. Like them, he makes it look easy." - Spider Robinson Mark Leiren-Young's comic memoir, Never Shoot a Stampede Queen (Heritage House, 2008), won the 2009 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. His new book, The Green Chain: Nothing is Ever Clear Cut collects 22 interviews about the issues facing our forests and includes the screenplay for his award-winning movie The Green Chain---which he wrote, produced and directed. Mark currently lives in Vancouver, BC. Ian Ferguson is an award-winning playwright and humorist whose commentaries have been widely broadcast on radio and television. His book Village of the Small Houses (Douglas & McIntyre, 2003) won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. He is the creator of the live improvised soap operas "Die-Nasty" and "Sin City" and is currently writing a sitcom pilot for a major U.S. television network. With his brother Will, he is the co-author of the runaway best-seller How to Be a Canadian (Douglas & McIntyre, 2001/2007). As a tongue-in-cheek guidebook, How to Be a Canadian tackles the many humorous complexities and nuances of what it means to be Canadian. Ian divides his time between Vancouver, BC and Los Angeles, CA. Ian Ferguson and Mark Leiren-Young appear thanks to the support of The Canada Council for the Arts. (starfishian)… (mais)
