On the Blog



~ We went Under the Cover with figure skating champions Meaghan Duhamel and Eric Radford, their editor Laura E. Young, and publisher Latitude 46 to find out how their latest book Soulmates on Ice was brought to publication in record time

~ Our #ReadIndigenous series continued with four more excerpts from Indigenous-authored books to explore: Herb Belcourt's Walking in the Woods (Brindle & Glass); Kevin Loring's Where the Blood Mixes (Talonbooks); Carol Rose Daniel's Hiraeth (Inanna Publications); and Jacqueline Guest's Death by Dinosaur (Coteau Books). 

~ Get the recipe for our lit-inspired cocktail and mocktail The Quick Red Fox and read from  Penn Kemp's latest collection  Fox Haunts (Quattro Books). 

~ Pedlar Press shares the story of how a children's book was one of the catalysts to keeping its doors open: "Then Linda Spalding said I mustn’t close Pedlar, especially not before I looked at The Lady From Kent by her friend Barbara Nichol."






Around the Web



~ Stó:lō writer Lee Maracle received the $10,000 Harbourfront Festival Prize for her body of impressive work and her contribution to the Canadian literary community

~ Halloween might bring out the ghosts and goblins, but what's more terrifying than a stack of unread books? 

~ We take that back. These terrible book covers are the stuff of design nightmares







What Else We're Reading


We're getting spooked for Halloween in literary style with Phillip Ernest's debut vampire novel The Vetala (Linda Leith Publishing) that's sure to be devoured by any Dracula-heads.
