At the end of almost every episode of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, George asks a member of the audience to hold up the Red Book for the camera to capture a special message. It could be a song, a video, a book, a movie, a website... the only real criteria are that it's something interesting that George wants to share with the world.

We're rounding up all of the Red Book message of the season in a new series we're calling the Red Book Diaries.

In this edition, we salute Against Me!, learn about the hero dogs of 9/11, forget our phones and more.
