This week our book club got real chatty about China, love, and translation and stepped up our London, ON knowledge (did you know Kim Mitchel's song “Patio Lanterns” wasn't named after the dangling bulbs on the patio of a favourite bar?!).
~ How does the way we communicate with each other affect our message, and what are we really trying to say? Domenico Capilongo's send (Guernica Editions) asks us to consider in
this edition of Poetry in Motion.
~ "Women never stop stitching men up and men keep pouring themselves drinks" was the inspiration for
this edition of Quoted featuring Winter Child (Freehand Books).
~ Buzzfeed suggests we visit the Wiblingen Monastery Library in Germany after we designed our own library.

What Else We're Reading
Fans of Kelley Armstrong's crime thrillers might find a surprise hit in D.K. Stone's
Edge of Wild (Stonehouse Publishing).You'll be taken to a remote Northern setting where our protag investigates a murder (and maybe finds romance in the snow). It's a little cozier than Armstrong's latest series, but has just enough chills to take the edge off this heat-wave.
