The Monday Morning After – October 8, 2012

The Show
First Hour
On today’s show is my interview with Catherine Charlebois of the Centre d’histoire de Montréal about the exposition quartiers disparus, originally running from June 2011 to March 2012 but due to its success, now extended until September 2013. We talked about the process of creating an exposition so vast and complex and what it can teach us about the evolution of urban planning and the everchanging face of cities.

Plus us Montrealers are lucky enough to have some free/cheap events coming up this week, including:

Tuesday, October 9 – FREE
Jonathan Goldstein Launches I’ll Seize the Day Tomorrow
Sala Rossa, 4848 Boul. St Laurent, 7pm!

Join us for a very special evening with Montreal-based author Jonathan Goldstein celebrating the launch of his brand new book, I’ll Seize the Day Tomorrow.

In a series of wonderfully funny stories, the host of CBC’s WireTap recounts the highs and lows of his last year in his thirties. His friends and family, many of them known through their appearances on WireTap, weigh in with hilarious results as Goldstein eats, sleeps, and watches bad TV all the way to his date with destiny.

The evening will consist of a reading and book signing, with guest appearances by a few surprise guests, and the debut screening of a short Wiretap animation.

Wednesday, October 10 – FREE
