Around the Web



~ Two ALU-member publishers had books shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry PrizeSilvija by Sandra Ridley (BookThug), and Injun by Jordan Abel (Talonbooks).

~ If you liked Zoe Whittall's The Best Kind of People and Sarah Polley's directorial chops, get ready for the book-to-film adaptation

~ When your Goodreads TBR pile is so long it should be on your TBR pile, spring clean that list.
