This week we celebrated many things: finalists of the Trillium Book Award and the Indigenous Voices Awards, Asian Heritage Month, Short Story Month, and read a new novel that'll evoke When Everything Feels Like the Movies.
This week we appreciated local food producers, discovered and shared Indigenous-authored books, arm-chair traveled back to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and much more.
There's nothing scary about three season launches and two festivals this week (well, maybe that we don't have enough time to see them all!).
