  1. Oh this is cool. You seem to have your finger on what’s happening in the city I will be checking this out more. Have you listened to the CBC’s go to it girl. She usually reports on stuff like this happening on a daily basis. I also noticed that you are apart of a book club! My book club sucks, they ALL hated a Complicated Kindness! How can 8 people hate such a popular, well written, accessible book??? Kevin

  2. I’m sure I’ve heard “Go To It Girl” on the CBC, since the CBC is the only radio station I listen to now! But these particular events I found in NOW Magazine’s event listings… I get an email version sent to me each week… it’s pretty handy! Hey man, we’ve had our book club “moments” too… Generally we all agree when a book sucks (like <>The Question<>, by Austin Clarke- gawd that was awful). I haven’t read <>A Complicated Kindness<> yet… I had a notion to pick it last time it was my turn, but instead I chose <>The Time In Between<> instead (another Giller winner, that was just so-so 😦 ). Popular + Accessible doesn’t necessarily = good book… but if it’s well-written it deserves the hype it gets!
