All Hallow’s Read

31 Oct

As it is Halloween, I thought I would share some literary treats for you to enjoy!

First up, we have a series of morbid, yet beautiful poems via Flavorwire. Get cozy in an armchair and lose yourself in these poems about death & dying. The perfect way to celebrate the day of the dead! http://flavorwire.com/422783/10-beautiful-poems-about-death/view-all/

Immediately after reading these hauntingly tragic poems, I recommend inserting some comic relief into your day by perusing these hilarious ‘Shopping for groceries with the romantic poets’ sketches by cartoonist Jason Novak. http://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2013/10/25/shopping-for-groceries-with-the-romantic-poets/

And if sharing + scary books are  your thing, you should definitely check out Neil Gaiman’s Halloween initiative to get scary books into the hands of children, which he hopes will become a Halloween tradition in the years to come. As a kid, I would have loved to have received some scary books/comics while trick or treating. I think it’s a great idea, and I hope it takes off! http://www.allhallowsread.com

Q

25 Oct

I am very excited to announce that my author Todd MacLean, Editor-in-Chief of Global Chorus, is going to be interviewed by Jian Ghomeshi on Q!

The interview will be done in front of a live hometown audience in PEI on November 7th at Confederation Centre, and aired on Friday, November 8th.

I am thrilled by the fantastic coverage Global Chorus has been receiving, and I can only imagine that Todd’s interview with Jian is going to catapult the project into the limelight on a much grander scale. An important book like this deserves an international spotlight on it. This is a book that has the potential to inspire change and make a real impact on an  environmental and global level, and I am so proud of Todd and all that he has accomplished! It’s been such an honour being involved on such an important project.

But don’t just take my word for it. To learn more about Global Chorus, tune in on the 8th!
