Allegra Young and All Things Awesome

Allegra Young and All Things Awesome

Allegra Young is as talented and charming as she is beautiful; handy for you folks, since she’s semi-nude in the ad for Bare It For Books, the sexy but “classy” (LOVE that word) upcoming 2014 calendar featuring 12 well-known Canadian authors who are almost naked but not quite. We are Canadian after all. Young and her co-conspirator Amanda Leduc (author of just released THE MIRACLES OF ORDINARY MEN) created Bare It For Books in an attempt to raise funds for PEN Canada, with a goal of $20,000. You can join in the fun and get your groovy calendar if you simply CLICK HERE. Did I mention the naked bits? 

I had the pleasure of meeting Young and Leduc last week and both are unassuming and quietly elegant, which is not exactly what you expect of the people who are behind a naked calendar. This lack of showiness, however, is exactly why we expect the calendar to be a success. Now can you imagine a better or more unique calendar for the book lover in your life?

Reading THE MIRACLES OF ORDINARY MEN myself – my Mother’s Day treat to myself – and loving it so far. More on this later, as my Mother’s Day mimosa binge shortened my reading time considerably in favour of the more traditional Mother’s Day afternoon nap.
