This week marks the 2011 Women of the Short Story book tour. It also marks the seventh anniversary of a local publishing gem—Daniel Wells’ Biblioasis.
On Sunday October 2nd, three of Biblioasis’ most accomplished short fiction writers landed at Phog Lounge to kick off a six-city book tour. Rebecca Rosenblum’s The Big Dream (as featured on the cover of the Arts section in Saturday’s National Post) explores the untended inner lives of office workers at a magazine publishing company; Laura Boudreau’s Suitable Precautions focuses on human bonds, especially in times of bitterness or in moments of tension and derailment; and Cathy Stonehouse’s Something About the Animal is suite primarily about memory, madness, and trauma.
Not only was this the launch of the Ontario-based book tour, but it was the celebration of Biblioasis’ seventh anniversary as a book publisher.
Today’s Windsor caught up with Daniel and his team at Phog to talk to them about their works and what Biblioasis has on the schedule for the rest of the fall season. Check out the video by clicking on the image above.
The tour will take the authors from Windsor to London, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and, finally, Montreal.
