- Michael Lista (we’ll be publishing his book, Strike Anywhere, in the Spring) wrote a truly eye-opening article on the Canadaland website talking about poetry, oppression and Canadian complicity as it relates to Scott Griffin of the Griffin Poetry Prize. It’s a bit of a long read, but I promise you it’s worth it.
- Now, moving on from the serious to the silly, it’s a hilarious list of how the Harry Potter series might be different if it were set in Canada. Gems include #6: Platform 9 ¾ would constantly be under construction; and #18: the house elves would be represented by CUPE.
- If you haven’t seen this map of literature yet, what are you waiting for? It is absolutely gorgeous and so detailed it will make you swoon.
- Curious about the Fisher Small and Fine Press fair? Whether you made it or you missed it, check out these photos of the super fun event.
- And finally, you’ll all be happy to know that after a long wait, P. K. Page’s Mexican Journal is now available! The colour images inside are absolutely gorgeous, and truly complement the beauty of the writing inside.
Well, it has been quite a busy week here at PQL. Hope all you Quill fans are enjoying the mild weather and able to find some time for a bit of outside reading. Enjoy this week’s roundup, and be sure to keep in touch via the comments section, and on Facebook and Twitter!
