One year ago today, poet Judith Fitzgerald passed away. Her last collection, Impeccable Regret, had been published just weeks before her death. Recently Canada and the world lost another literary and musical luminary, Leonard Cohen. Cohen and Fitzgerald had a friendship of many years and occasionally collaborated. On Meta-Talon, enjoy two poems from Impeccable Regret collection, in fond remembrance of both Cohen and Fitzgerald.Thursday November 17, 2016 in Meta-Talon
Annabel Soutar’s latest documentary play, The Watershed, follows an artist and her family in the struggle to chart a sustainable course between economic prosperity and environmental stewardship. The Watershed is now on stage at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal and just finished a run at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto, and the play was published by Talonbooks earlier this year. Today on Meta-Talon, read a scene from The Watershed.Thursday September 22, 2016 in Meta-Talon
A delight to read, U Girl is the meta-fictional, feminist story of Frances Nelson, a first-year university student who wants to write a novel. This nostalgic novel is set in Vancouver in the early 1970s, but its characters and conflicts ring just as true today.
One of the most memorable – and perhaps character-defining – scenes of the novel takes place in Chapter 6, when Frances attends a poetry reading with her friend Dagmar, who will be reading (for the first time). Read the scene on Meta-Talon today.Thursday September 8, 2016 in Meta-Talon
It’s back-to-school time! For some, a happy haze of nostalgia sets in. For others, the supplies are bought and the outfits arranged in honour of that first week: you can be a new you. Maybe this year.
In honour of the back-to-school season, we’ve gathered a list of our favourite school-related Talonbooks. As though your fall reading list isn’t long enough already.
