The March edition: Cheryl Hnatiuk, tuna something, Joyce Carole Oates, Meghan O’Rourke, Timothy AllenMarch 13, 2011
Ready for a spot of colour? A crunch of greenness? And a couple of people whose wonder, yes I said wonder, at the world will do its best to inspire you?
This month at 11th ave, I am determined to try to create a bit of the spring that seems intent on hiding for a few more weeks. Sample the wares. Hope you enjoy.
- The Proust Questionnaire 5.0 is graced by Cheryl Hnatiuk, a Winnipeg girl I met in Montreal and found again in Winnipeg at the perfect moment.
- The fine print alights on the tender topic of grief memoirs, featuring a Q&A with Joyce Carole Oates and a name less recognizable, but worth your while: Meghan O’Rourke, whose recent essay is also included this month. O’Rourke’s Story’s End: Writing a Mother’s Death is just gorgeously written.
- Read, cook, eat brings the crunch of zucchini to the comfort of tuna-noodle-casserole, only without the noodles.
- And last but not least, the photo feature snap takes in a slideshow of the amazing work of Timothy Allen (no, not TIM Allen), a photographer who documents in still photos a handful of natural and human marvels. His photos are gorgeous. His attitude will double your appreciation.
That’s it for this month. So nice to have you drop by. Keep a good thought.
