    In his new book, Campaign Confessions, John Laschinger, a professional campaign manager with 50 leadership and general election campaigns, opens the doors to the backrooms and war rooms of the political campaigns he has run, providing lessons for aspiring campaign managers, and exposing what really happens behind the scenes. During the 2015 federal election, approximately 1,200 political campaigns were held across Canada. One of those campaigns belonged to author, journalist, and political neophyte Noah Richler. In The Candidate, Richler lays bare what goes on behind the slogans, canvassing and talking points, told from the perspective of a political outsider. The Ottawa Writers Festival presents these writers. 4 p.m. Christ Church Cathedral, 414 Sparks St. Free for members, $10-$20 for others. Buy tickets via
