The great Margaret Atwood is one of Canada's most important (and most prolific) writers, and she's currently celebrating the fortieth anniversary of a book that helped define Canadian literature. It's called 'Survival,' and its vision of how Canadians write, and why, has been the subject of admiration, debate and a lot of scholarship over the years. House of Anansi Press is reissuing that book, along with a digital release of 'Speeches For Dr. Frankenstein', an illustrated version of an Atwood poem. Plus, we'll tell you Five Reasons To Hold Off The Apocalypse For Another Year, and our comedy panel features the always funny Arthur Simeon.
