Who and What for Feb.7

Some call it Winter-peg, but it's also the hottest Can-Lit City of 2008, according to Quill & Quire. We celebrate some local authors.

David Bergen drops by for a chat about his latest novel The Retreat.

Winnipeg band The Weakerthans offers an homage to home with "One Great City" from the CD Reconstruction Site.

And speaking of homage, we'll hear a tribute to author Carol Shields on the fifteenth anniversary of her novel The Stone Diaries.

Winnipeg singer/songwriter Christine Fellows explains her connection to literature. We play "Not Wanted on the Voyage" from her CD, Nevertheless.

And finally, author Andrew Davidson discusses the extraordinary cash advance for his debut novel The Gargoyle.
