Video of the Week: Jian Ghomeshi's 1982 Book Launch Party

Share |

Jian Ghomeshi is best known as the host of CBC Radio's Q, but this season he's ventured into new territory, publishing 1982 (Penguin Canada), a memoir of his life in that year, told through ten connected stories focused on favourite songs of the era.

The launch brought out plenty of Canadian star power, literary and otherwise. Check out the video to hear from the likes of Atom Egoyan, Justin Trudeau and Jian himself about the book, the immigrant experience and memories of the 80s.
