CCR Book Club: Meet the Author - November 20, 2022

The CCR Book Club is pleased to announce that Anne Giardini will be presenting her novel "Advice for Italian Boys" (Harper Collins, 2009) at the November meeting.

Anne studied Economics and Political Science at the University of Ottawa and Simon Fraser University and then went on to obtain an LLB from the University of British Columbia and an LLM from Trinity Hall, Cambridge University. Anne’s work includes two novels published by Harper Collins, numerous columns for the National Post and, together with her son, Nicholas Giardini, co-editing Startle and Illuminate, a book of advice and reflections on writing by Anne’s mother, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Carol Shields. Anne is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, is an Officer of the Order of Canada and a member of the Order of British Columbia, and most recently, is the recipient of a degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, from Simon Fraser University. 
Anne divides her time between Vancouver, where she served as chancellor of Simon Fraser University (2014-2020) and currently serves on several boards, and her home in Rome, Italy. We are delighted to have Anne as a member of the CCR and look forward to discussing her charming novel.
