Congratulations to all the winners of this years Governor General’s Literary Award with a special shout to to Susin Nielsen – a fellow CWILL member from Vancouver. I loved “Dear George Clooney: Please Marry My Mom” and I look forward to reading “The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larson.”

Lots of great books to add to my “to read” list on Goodreads. House Held Up by Trees is the only title I’ve read from the Children’s selection – an amazing book. Congratulations to Jon Klassen (who I met in LA!) and all the other talented authors, illustrators, and translators.
Okay, I love books but this is insane! Check out Brian Dettmer’s transformation of old books using knives, tweezers, and surgical tools. More photos and information at MY MODERN MET, The Book Surgeon. And I thought it took a lot of patience to write a book!
