About Lainie Towell

Lainie holds a degree in Art History and is the recipient of several professional dance grants and one inter-arts grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. She has been credited for motivating the government to tighten Canadian laws around marriages of convenience - and she did it by using art as a vehicle for communicating with the media and government about her personal story. Lainie's story caught international media attention when she marched to Parliament Hill wearing her wedding dress and a red door strapped to her back. She lives in Canada's national capital region with her miniature dachshund, Picasso. How to Catch an African Chicken is her first book.

Not many books have been able to captivate me the way this one has .I laughed cried , I cheered her on and as the sun set and the moon shined brightly I knew that I was up way past my bedtime. But after crying some more and yelling nooooooo I was certain that I was not able to sleep until I found out how this book ended. ( Truthfully she had me at page 3 )this book has earned it's spot in my library I recommend this book to any one who has the day to read it cause I guarantee you won't put it down
