April was poetry month, and now you’re getting the fruits of that in Get Lit land. The first of several interviews today, featuring two poets whose work came out with McClelland and Stewart this year. We’ll talk with Doyali Islam about her new collection Heft, and Cassidy McFadzean about her newest, Drolleries. Both great books, both thoughtful, wonderful people in my limited experiernce! Hope you enjoy our chats.
McClelland and Stewart
How do folks!
Personal update: second Canada Council grant app, second failure. No matter. I did it without ’em last time 😀
Local update: It is with great sadness (and no small amount of shock) that we discovered Bryan Prince Bookseller was closing – today, March 29th, 2018. We wish Kerry the best of luck in future endeavors and man, if I were rich, I’d so buy that place…
This week’s show! Two guests for the price of one (now’s the time for me to note that, hey, there’s no price for this program). We talk with poets Jeff Latosik and Stevie Howell. Both have excellent new collections out, – Jeff’s Dreampad and Stevie’s I Left Nothing Inside On Purpose. Get ’em both via McClelland and Stewart. Hope you enjoy!
