Hey all! Hope you’re all well and reading all the fantastic releases already trickling out this year. I am beyond excited to share conversations with some fantastic authors in the next few weeks.
Hey folks! Today’s show features poet and author Jenna Butler. Her book is the kind of book that makes doing Get Lit so enjoyable (oh who am I kidding, they all make it enjoyable) because it’s the kind of book I might not pick up on my own. I didn’t know I was interested in bees until I had to read a book about bees! That book, Revery: A Year Of Bees is an excellent, interesting read. Enjoy the program.
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you managed to eke out a satisfying holiday season.
Kicking off 2021 with a very special interview. I had the chance to talk to Lorna Crozier about her memoir Through The Garden: A Love Story (with Cats). Lorna is a remarkable poet and author, an Officer of the Order of Canada, and from my brief experience, a lovely human being. Through the Garden chronicles her life and life during her late husband Patrick Lane‘s illness and tragic passing (I was lucky enough to speak with him before he passed, you can hear it here).
Hope you enjoy the show.
Hey all! Bit of a rush here today – New Year’s Eve is also my wife’s birthday, so what am I doing on the computer?
Wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone out there. Thank you so much for listening. I hope 20201 brings you joy.
Today’s guest is my friend, writer Jessica Rose, here to discuss Reclaiming Hamilton: Essays From The New Ambitious City Check it out!
Merry Merry and Happy Happy to everyone out there in lit land. Our weekly show lands on Christmas Eve, so you might not get around to it quite yet, but if you’re looking for something to do between the holidays, we’ve got you covered.
Hey everyone, hope you’re doing well as we head into the holidays. I will have episodes on Christmas and New Year’s eves, though they will not air on the FM band (the station’s running automated programs).
This week we talk with Jonas Hassen Khemiri, whose recent novel The Family Clause was nominated for the National Book Award in Sweden. He chats with us from his home in Stockholm. The book is available in English translation via House of Anansi. Enjoy!
It’s been a busy book week around here. I’ve done an interview with Cable 14 promoting the Hamilton Literary Awards, had a review published in the Hamilton Review of Books (one that I wrote, that is) and the Hamilton Public Library posted this. It’s now the second reading I’ve done from the new work. Given that the book isn’t slated for release until spring 2023, hopefully anyone who likes it will remember later. A few years later 😀
Today’s guest is Kerry Clare, discussing her new novel Waiting For A Star To Fall. After the requisite jokes about the song of the same name being stuck in my head, we had a wonderful chat about the book. I hope you enjoy.
Hi everyone! Something a little different today. We chat with Kathryn Nicolai, writer and host of the Nothing Much Happens podcast, which has had about a squillion downloads (no, really, hundreds of millions). We discuss the idea of writing a story with very little story, word choices, mindfulness and more. Tune in!
