A CanLit Live Blog!
Updated with pic of Nino Ricci live blogging at the office. If you missed it today, you can catch a transcript here.
Well it was a fun, productive weekend, but the recap will have to wait until tomorrow. In a few hours I’ll be helping Nino Ricci get signed up to live blog during the inaugural CanLit Roundtable at the National Post’s new online Books section!
It’s a great time to talk books--the Giller Prize will be awarded tomorrow night, and the Governor General's Awards handed out next week. Ergo, today some of Canada's top authors, editors and publishers will gather for an interactive chat about the awards season.
Random House of Canada and M&S authors include:
Nino Ricci, author of The Origin of Species, 2008 Governor General’s Literary Awards nominee
Vincent Lam, author of Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures, Winner 2006 Scotiabank Giller Prize
Terry Fallis, author of The Best Laid Plans, winner of 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
Douglas Hunter, author of God’s Mercies, 2008 Governor General’s Literary Award nominee
Martha Kanya-Forstner (who edited five of the GG award nominated books) will also be joining in, as well as Doug Pepper, President and Publisher for McClelland & Stewart. Fab lineup, no?
Make yourself a sandwich, and come and check it out here at 12:00 pm today!
