Our week consisted of Mother's Day book-picking, Short Story Month interviewing, book-to-film casting, and plenty more!
This week we played casting director (Hollywood can thank us now), celebrated World Theatre Day with a journey through Canada, and tuned into CBC's Canada Reads.
It's one of our favourite times of the year: the GGLAs were announced, Halloween candy is 50% off, and our schedules are packed with reading events. Read on to see which authors and books we featured on the blog, and what the internet has given us this week.
