Wordfest's Imagine On Air is thrilled to present beloved CBC radio host Terry O’Reilly and his new book, My Best Mistake: Epic Fails and Silver Linings. This special one-hour conversation will start at 7:00 PM MT and will be hosted by Wordfest's Creative Ringleader Shelley Youngblut. (The pre-show will begin at 6:50 PM MT.) The livestream broadcast on Wordfest.com is free. If you RSVP, we'll send you a reminder on the afternoon of the show, as well as our unique Digital Doggie Bag after the event with links and extras sparked by the conversation.
You've tuned in to O’Reilly’s Under the Influence show for years. You’ve read his previous two bestsellers about advertising. Now we invite you to go deeper: into the big generous brain of Terry O’Reilly.
We are grateful to HarperCollins Canada for making it possible for us to connect you with one of the world's most influential thinkers.
