Saturday Feb. 28th

Shelagh's heading to Montreal this week to host the presentation of the CBC Literary Awards. Or, rather, co-host with Lorraine Pintal, because it's a bicultural event rewarding creative writers in English and French. We'll meet all the winners on this week's episode of The Next Chapter.

The actual announcement of the winners happens on-air. Shelagh will visit Jian Ghomeshi on Q at 10:30 a.m. (11 a.m. NT) on Thursday to reveal their names.

All we know so far is that Saturday's show will include a poet, a short-story writer, and a creative nonfiction writer.

(Note how poetry has a proper, concise title for practitioners of the genre: "poet". Short-storyists and creative-nonfictioners really ought to find themselves a less cumbersome label.)

Can somebody tell me about the music for piano (name of piece and artist)that accompanied "The Proust Questionnaire" with Gail Anderson-Dargatz. Thanks!

That's just me, I'm afraid. I was vaguely channelling La Marseillaise to accompany the French theme, but other than that I don't think the music can claim to have a name.
