Hi folks! This week we speak with author Rebecca Campbell about her book Arboreality. Check it out!
GET LIT first aired exactly 6 years ago! Nov 24, 2016. My 47th birthday!
We celebrate this week talking to two great poets – John Wall Barger and David Ly. When I launched River, Diverted, both came to read at the event and it was wonderful. Check out their latest releases – John’s Smog Mother and David’s Dream of Me As Water
Ignore the dates on the link and possibly the filename, it’s E314 Nov 24.
Super excited about this week’s show! First, I had the privilege of meeting Hamilton-based author Sheila Murray, and she was wonderful. Second, her debut novel Finding Edward is up for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction (announced Nov 16) which is exciting. Third, it was that rare in-studio conversation which always feels good. Hope you enjoy!
(Also I know there’s a typo in the file name – oops!)
Also: if you live in the Windsor area, I’m there tonight (Nov 10) at Biblioasis Bookshop to read from my new novel, River, Diverted. Drop by! More info here.
Hey everyone. Today we talk with the poet Fareh Malik. We discuss his work and specifically his collection Streams That Lead Somewhere. Keep your eye out for him; Fareh won the RBC/PEN Canada New Voices Award this year. Really enjoyed our conversation (and we got a couple readings here too). Hope you enjoy!
Hey all! Today Hamiltonian Carl Watts joins us to talk about his book, I Just Wrote This Five Minutes Ago: Essays on Contemporary Poetry. I feel like I’ve just begun to grasp my own understanding of poetry and was concerned that discussing poetry criticism would be way over my head. Maybe it was? Ha! It was a great conversation anyway. Check it out.
Also: River, Diverted somehow ended up in the top ten! Even adjusting for scope (it’s indie bookstores only, it’s Canadian indie publishers only) I’m still flabbergasted and thrilled. Thanks, book-buyers!
Hey folks! I wanna take a second to say thanks to everyone who came to my book launch and who has supported me through this second novel experience.
Yes, today the guest is…me.
Self-serving? Maybe. Sometimes you gotta do it. A while back, author and excellent fellow Mark Sampson approached me to suggest he interview me when River, Diverted was released. The result was very kind, thoughtful, illuminating and entertaining – for me, at least! I hope you think so too.
River, Diverted was released Oct 1st!
If you’re in the Hamilton area, you can come on along to my launch party on Oct 12. Details below the sound file!
