The Monday Morning After – September 24, 2012

Hosts: Cam Novak, Taylor Tower
Tech: Cam Novak

Books! Aren’t the books of Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums big time? Not only in cover design but in general content? “Everyone knows Old Custer died at Little Bighorn. What this novel presupposes is… Maybe he didn’t?”

First Hour
I spoke with Stephanie Bolster, a finalist in the CBC Canada Writes Poetry Prize. Stephanie is an Associate Professor in the English Department at Concordia University and a multiple award-winning poet. We talked about her work and what it’s like to be a finalist for this prestigious prize, which awards a Banff residency to the first-place winner.

Here are some links to poetry resources in town:
Quebec Writers’ Federation (workshops, news about conferences and author readings, etc)
Poetry Quebec

And if you love all things books, don’t miss this weekend’s Journée de la culture which features open houses for four local bookbinding studios. All the information is here.
More sources for bookbinding and book arts:
AQRAL(Association des Relieurs et des Artistes du Livre)
ARA (les Amis de la Reliure d’Art du Canada) 
CBBAG (Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild)
The Book Arts Web 

Second Hour
The headlines from Democracy Now! and  an in-studio interview with Alain Mercieca, writer and big man at Theatre Ste Catherine. We spoke about his play DePFLIES, on now until October 5th. The Charlebois Post calls Mercieca “the Chekhov of St Henri ….with moments of Seinfeld.” Then regular contributor Zoreen is in studio to talk with registered nurse Tracy Stynett about ragweed and allergies.

Then it’s over to Cam for this week’s Bike Lane.
