Wordfest's Imagine On Air presents Canadian comic genius Rick Mercer in celebration of his new, guaranteed bestseller: Talking to Canadians. The one-hour conversation will start at 7:00 PM MT and will be hosted by Mercer’s BFF and frequent comedy foil, Jann Arden. (The pre-show will begin at 6:50 PM.)
Tickets are $36 (plus tax) and include your ticket, a copy of Talking to Canadians, and shipping in Canada. There will also be an exclusive opportunity to ask questions, and you can email them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. *Signed copies (*bookplates) available only to the first 300 ticket holders. We are now sold out of signed copies.
We are delighted to be partnering with Indigo Books. The official publication date for Talking to Canadians is Nov. 2, at which point Indigo can begin shipping the books – as soon as they process your order, Indigo will send you a confirmation email with tracking information. Please note that we will do our very best to ship the included book as soon as orders are placed; however, delivery in advance of showtime cannot be guaranteed.
You'll also receive an email reminder the day before the show, as well as Wordfest's unique Digital Doggie Bag the day after with links and extras inspired by the conversation. If you are unable to watch live or want to watch again, the show will be available on demand at Wordfest.com until midnight Jan. 7, 2022.
We’re thankful to Penguin Random House Canada for making it possible for us to connect you with Rick Mercer and Calgary's beloved Jann Arden.
Note: If you have already purchased a hard cover or audio version of Talking to Canadians – or live outside of Canada – and would like to experience this show, please contact us at email@example.com.
