An Afternoon in the Park with Ian Ferguson
Ian Ferguson won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour for his book Village of the Small Houses, and is the co-author, with his brother Will Ferguson, of How to be a Canadian, which was shortlisted for the Leacock and won the CBA Libris Award for non-fiction. He was selected for inclusion in the Penguin Anthology of Canadian Humour, was a contributing essayist to Me Funny, an anthology of Aboriginal humour, and has had his writing published in Reader’s Digest, Macleans, the Globe & Mail, the National Post and EnRoute Magazine, among others. For the past ten years he has worked as a writer and creative director in the film & television industry. Unfortunately, it was the Canadian film & television industry.
