THE INTERVIEWS: Roy MacGregor | "The Afterlife of Birds" | Brian Brennan on Winnifred Eaton Reeve
Daybreak Alberta host Chris dela Torre spoke with Roy MacGregor, bestselling author, award-winning newspaper contributer, and Officer in the Order of Canada. His latest book -- his 50th -- is an ode to a well-loved Canadian pastime. In Canoe Country: The Making of Canada, MacGregor argues that Canada literally would not exist without the canoe. The book is newly published by Random House Canada.
THE AFTERLIFE OF BIRDS
Daybreak's Alberta books columnist Angie Abdou brought us her review of the debut novel from Alberta poet, Elizabeth Philips. The Afterlife of Birds tells the story of a man fascinated with bird skeletons - a story perhaps meant to articulate a larger narrative about our own obsessions. Angie is a bestselling author in her own right and assistant professor of Creative Writing at Athabasca University.
ROGUES AND REBELS: WINNIFRED EATON REEVE
In Part 2 of his 'Rogues and Rebels' series, writer and historian Brian Brennan told us about Winnifred Eaton Reeve -- a bestselling author who, for decades, pretended to be Japanese for the sake of her career. Brennan is joining us every Sunday in September to profile a different Alberta-based subject from his book Rogues and Rebels: Unforgettable Characters From Canada's West.
