Hey all! Had another chance to talk to Karma Brown, this time about her new book What Wild Women Do. Karma’s the bestselling author of five novels (our first chat was about her #1 national bestseller A Recipe for a Perfect Wife) and a National Magazine Award–winner.
Hey everyone. Where to begin? What madness surrounds us! I’m both terrified and not worried at all, depending on a/ what we’re talking about and b/ the moment you ask me. All I know is that most of the people I love are washing hands/staying home/covering coughs, all the things we need to do. The economic prospects are scary but, really, not the immediate concern, so I just sort of push it out of my mind.
Anyway, books are a sweet way to pass the time while you’re at home, and a good method of distraction. As I work at 93.3 CFMU FM, deemed an “essential service” at McMaster University, I will continue to provide new programs for as long as I am able. Listen in! Read books! Order from local bookstores. Do it all if you can. Do what you can, as it’s all you can do.
Today’s guest is the fabulous Amanda Leduc, talking about her thoughtful and fascinating book, Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability and Making Space. I hope you enjoy – both the show and the book. Be well, be safe!
Also: if this is your kind of thing…
The station of origin for GET LIT is 93.3 CFMU FM out of Hamilton, Ontario. We’ve been a community voice since January 1978. Recent decisions by the provincial government really hit us hard. We lost about a third of our budget. Every year, we do a fundraiser, and this year it’s more important than ever. If you’re inclined to support community radio, please consider doing so at cfmu.ca/fundraising (or cfmu.ca and click the “donate” button as long as the pop-up is still popping).
