Stuart McLean is an avid reader of history
He's an award winning journalist, a best selling author, and host of the CBC radio program called The Vinyl Cafe.
Stuart McLean has been on the road with The Vinyl Cafe since mid-November. He wraps up his tour on Christmas Eve in Montreal.
SCENE asked McLean if he had time to read and if so, what was on his reading pile:
My favourite two books this summer were Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and John Ralston Saul’s contribution to Penguin’s Extraordinary Canadians series about Louis-Hippolyte LaFontaine and Robert Baldwin.
This autumn I have been carting around the massive Shields and Salerno account of the life of JD Salinger. I suspect it represents the paper edit of their film, which I have (as of this writing) yet to see. I can’t wait.
Stuart McLean will feature new Dave & Morley stories and live music from the Good Lovelies at 7:30 on Monday November 25 at the Concert Hall in Winnipeg.
