A Book Club Worth Ranting About

Rick Mercer is one of my heroes. Next Thursday night I get to chat about his new book A Nation Worth Ranting About with some interesting folks I met through Twitter. So far our book club has talked about a diversity of non-fiction topics from food to chaos theory. The book club respects different points of view (within reason) and strives to be an open conversation. A Nation Worth Ranting About will make for a funny and interesting evening.  We meet on the second floor of The Bookshelf in the Greenroom next Thursday at 7:00 pm. 

Rick Mercer has an interesting connection to Guelph via social media. Unbeknownst to him, he inspired Gracen Johnson and Yvonne Su's attempt to get young people out to vote. As Mercer put it, "Vote Mob? What's a Vote Mob? I had no idea this had something to do with me."

If you would like to come to the book club but don't have a copy of  A Nation To Rant About, you're in luck. We're giving away a copy to the first person who can tell us the day Rick Mercer received an honorary degree from The University of Guelph! Tweet us at @bookshelfnews or email

If you would like to catch the flavour of the book-club, check out the hashtag #reallongtweets.
