“Dr. Foth” visits Victoria on book tour

Allan Fotheringham visits Victoria to sign his new book, Boy From Nowhere

Allan Fotheringham

One of Canada’s most well-travelled journalists is making a stop in the Capital Region next week to promote his new memoir.

Allan Fotheringham, known to many as Dr. Foth, has been a journalist and columnist for more than 50 years for publications like the Vancouver Sun, MacLean’s, and the Globe and Mail. He was also a panelist on the popular CBC-TV show Front Page Challenge.

Fotheringham’s new book — his ninth — is titled Boy From Nowhere: A Life in Ninety-One Countries, and is filled with reflections on the columnist’s life and career, celebrity encounters, and commentary on his early days in journalism.

Dr. Foth will give a talk and sign copies of the book at the Central library branch, 735 Broughton St., on Nov. 13 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
