Sunday, July 29, 2012 |
Beach Read 5: Alison Smith talks to Harry Thurston, a Nova Scotia poet, naturalist and writer who admits, even brags, that he has always been fascinated by the Atlantic Ocean. His love of language and landscape come together in his latest book, The Atlantic Coast: A Natural History.
Heather Reisman, the founder and CEO of Indigo, is arguably the most important person in the Canadian publishing business, but she's not a publisher. Michael Enright talks to the head of Canada's biggest book chain.
Music featured in this hour:
Honeysuckle Rose by Fats Waller performed by James Gelfand
Cape Breton by David Myles
Allegro from Beethoven's Piano Trio No.1 performed by Joe Trio
