On the Blog
~ We polled authors and publishers to snoop their favourite summertime reading spots.
~ Jessica Mitton's new cookbook Some Good (Breakwater Books) inspired this tasty staff meal.
~ We chatted with Freehand Books publisher Kelsey Attard about the process of publishing this month's #ALUbookclub pick, The Figgs by Ali Bryan.
~ We were taken by storm in Read This, Then That pairing two novels that centre on the Hurricane Hazel: Jeanette Lynes' The Small Things that End the World (Coteau Books) and Mark Sinnett's The Carnivore (ECW Press).
~ Because we love a good coming-of-age novel, we turned our attention to David Kingston Yeh's debut fiction A Boy at the Edge of the World (Guernica Editions).
Around the Web
~ A good reminder from science that "transportation" (or getting lost in a book) makes you healthier all around.
~ Literary FOMO is real and you're not alone.
~ First rule: never reshelve the books! Here are the dos and don'ts of visiting a library.
