Mary Walsh: Open Book

Mary Walsh: Open Book was a weekly book club series on CBC Television, based on Oprah's Book Club, where friends and employees of Mary Walsh and other celebrities gathered to discuss books and literature.

Michael Donovan was the creator of Open Book.

The show was spoofed on Royal Canadian Air Farce as Open Book with Marg the Princess Warrior, with Roger Abbott impersonating Walsh in her Marg Delahunty persona from This Hour Has 22 Minutes, discussing books with her guests (including Luba Goy's Margaret Atwood). The running gag was Marg's tendency to rant incessantly about each book and then stray off-topic into her political views and declaring her opinion supreme, eventually driving away her guests.
