Social distancing didn't stop us from featuring some pretty great authors on the blog this week: Raquel Fletcher talks about diversity in Quebec; Brian Orend talks Epilepsy and writing; and Jane Munro contemplates the relationship between deep listening and poetry. Plus we've got some strange and surreal book picks to mirror our strange times.
"Sprung from the hair salon with a smooth,
back-combed flip, I looked like Betty Draper

kempt. Asked for sexy-messy beach
hair, paid for a docile bob. Everyone is trying to tone me down. Inwardly I scream."
