On the Blog



~ We took a trip to the rock with Jennifer Bowering Delisle's The Bosun Chair (NeWest Press) in Where in Canada.

~ Our July #teamALUreads pick, Death and the Intern (Invisible Publishing) is still top of mind at ALU HQ. This week we interviewed author Jeremy Hanson-Finger and talked everything from writing racially diverse characters to a medical demonstration involving a couch and two standing lamps.

~ We compared two plays - Twisted by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman & Joseph Jomo Pierre and In Care by Kenneth T. Williams - in honour of Fringe fest season in Read This, Then That.

~ Take our quiz to discover your next summer read because it's fail-proof and because we made it.




Around the Web



~ The Pride and Prejudice quote on the new British £10 banknote is a comical example of why context is key.

~ Speaking of, has Jane Austen become a chick lit icon 200-years after her death?

~ We dipped into this list of 11 most memorable swimming pools in literature because we've been dreaming up our own poolside party. 




What Else We're Reading

Our summer-night strolls are best with ice-cream and a side of Claire Kelly's poetry in Maunder (Palimpsest Press), which explores how and why people, especially women, walk and what happens on those walks.
