Today’s guest is Jeff Rubin, former economist and best-selling author. We talk about his latest, The Expendables: How The Middle Class Got Screwed By Globalization. Enjoy!
Happy Thursday! Today’s episode of Get Lit features an interview with poet Ross Belot. Another great experience for me – I learn a lot when I interview poets (well, when I interview anyone, really). Ross’ new collection is called Moving to Climate Change Hours and its’ available through Wolsak & Wynn.
Hey folks! This week we talk with UK author Maggie O’Farrell. Her latest novel is Hamnet & Judith, and it’s a fictionalization of events in the life of William Shakespeare. Even those who don’t think they’d be interested should check it out, it’s likely different than you think! Cheers everyone, be well – jt
I have finally found the head and heart space to go back and work on the book! With some encouragement I’m back at the work I’ve tentatively called River, Diverted (which I like but isn’t super descriptive) and, fingers crossed, it’s going to go from something I like to something all y’all will enjoy too !
This week’s show features author Aislinn Hunter. Great conversation – one of those sessions where after the mics were off, we just kept talking. Aislinn’s superb novel The Certainties is available now. Enjoy!
Hey folks! Okay so here’s the thing: I’ve done 193 shows without missing a week. I’m proud of that (hey, I need something) but this summer has been difficult due to, well, 2020. So when I was not able to get an interview in time for this week’s show – despite having 3 or 4 books read in advance – I decided to fashion something different to fill the space.
Today’s show features a long reading from Brent van Staalduinen. He reads from his novel Saints, Unexpected, captured at a LitLive event in 2016. His next, Boy, comes out in a couple months so stay tuned for info!
It’s a really weird time to be shopping a novel. It’s also really weird time to be shopping a really weird novel. I may have news? Soon? Or not? We’ll see. Either way, I’m back doing some edits on the book I’ve tentatively titled River, Diverted. So…hopefully soon I can stop these information-free posts and tell you all what’s up.
Siobhan Jamison is a professor at Seneca College and an author living in Ontario. We talk about the challenges she faced writing about her past in her novel, Maternity and Other Corsets. Hope you enjoy!
Hey all! This is Ben Robinson’s second appearance on the show. He’s a poet, librarian, and musician in Hamilton. Right now there’s two chapbooks you can enjoy – Dept of Continuous Improvement and Talking Gibberish to Strangers, two very different collections. He’s a thoughtful guy and had some insightful things to say, so listen on!
Hey all! Today’s guest is journalist and author Marta Zaraska. She’s here to talk about her new book Growing Young: How Friendship, Optimism and Kindness Can Help You Live To 100.
I know, I know – you can’t see your friends like you normally do, and it’s hard to be kind and optimistic with the world being on fire and all. Still, this book makes a lot of sense…nurture your kindness and optimism, and talk to you friends when you can 😀
