Mike McCardell will be doing a book signing at Coles in Willowbrook Mall on Friday, Nov. 25.

Meet Mike McCardell, bestselling author and CTV personality, at a book signing for his new book, None of This Was Planned: The Stories Behind the Stories at Coles in Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Friday, Nov. 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

McCardell has spent his life tracking down thousands upon thousands of stories. As the author of 11 books and a lifelong reporter, he has stored up a vast collection of anecdotes and is never short of a tale to tell.

With None of This Was Planned, McCardell takes readers behind the scenes to show the sometimes agonizing, sometimes accidental, always reaffirming experience of hunting down a good story with the clock ticking toward air time.

His collection covers such topics as the difficulty of counting guinea pigs, Vancouver’s own volcano, the cruelty of goldfish shoes, the violent history of the tulip and the secret to a perfect chocolate-chip cookie.

As McCardell describes, you don’t have to be a professional to collect stories of your own. All you need to do is take a walk and keep your eyes open–or open a good book.

Partial proceeds of each copy sold from now until Dec. 31 will also be donated to the BC Women’s Hospital Newborn Intensive Care Unit.

For more information about the event, please phone Coles at 604-530-2244.
