Award-Winning Broadcaster Rafe Mair Signs New Book

Posted: July 9, 2008

Meet renowned broadcaster and author Rafe Mair at a book signing for his newest collection of essays, What the Bleep Is Going On Here? . Mair will be at Chapters Metropolis, 4700 Kingsway in Burnaby, on Saturday, July 26 from 2:00-4:00pm.

In this thought-provoking book, Mair castigates lawyers for cashing in on the compensation to aboriginals in the residential schools, slaps the wrists of stockbrokers who are creaming their profits even as their clients go broke and weighs in on football-team owners who expect taxpayers to pay for their playpens. He has the temerity to propose knocking down a few more trees in Stanley Park so that people can actually walk between them, and establishing new rules to prevent fights in hockey games. When Mair looks out over the horizon, he even has advice for George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin. To top it off, he invites his readers to be “happy in agreement with him and angry as hell in disagreement.” There are sparks flying from the pages of this book.

The book signing is free and everyone is welcome. For more information about the event, please call Chapters at (604) 431-0463.
