CBC Radio column: Talking Animals

I’m fortunate this summer to spend every week talking on-air about books, and if you’re outside of Canada, or you miss me in your regions, I will post the audio here.

Here I am chatting with Gill Deacon, the host of CBC’s Here and Now, about my favourite Talking Animal books:

A little research on Marylebone

area-guide-baker-street-gallery-_01
“Marylebone became home to the city’s wealthy elite, but it was also scarred by pockets of extreme poverty. In Marylebone’s large and notorious workhouse, opened in 1775 on land donated by the Portland Estate on the north side of Paddington Street, society’s poorest and most vulnerable exchanged unpaid labour for food and shelter. A Ragged School, founded in 1846 on Grotto Passage, was set up to provide education for destitute children. The Ossington Buildings estate, off Moxon Street, was built between 1888 and 1892 to house some of the area’s working class poor, who had previously lived at the same site in miserable slum dwellings.”

Authors for Indies 2017

It’s that time of year again when Joyce and I carouse and generally cause some literary fun-to-be-had at our favourite indie bookstore: BOOKCITY at Yonge and St. Clair!

Outside BookCity at St. Clair & Yonge!

Not only do we have suggestions on the best books for kids, adults and baby goats (ok, maybe not the goats) but we can sign copies of our own books right there in store!

Come out and support your local bookstores on AUTHORS FOR INDIES day – April 29th, 2017.
