For our final week of our July book club, we've rounded up four follow-up reads to Eric Dupont's Life in the Court of Matane (Baraka Books/QC Fiction) that'll ease you into a life post-Matane.
We're bringing back our favourite Do-Lit-Yourself activity to celebrate spring: nail art! Find out which new covers inspired our literary manis this season.
