When I visited London earlier this year, I sat down with Craig Taylor to talk about his new book Londoners. My profile runs in today’s paper, just in time for the Olympics.
Recently, I went to Canada’s Wonderland for the first time in over a decade. I rode their newest coaster, Leviathan. Read all about it here.
A few years ago, I bought a small illustration showing the intersection of College and Grace streets, not far from where I live. In today’s National Post, I talk to the artist, Michael Cho, about his new book, Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes.
In Saturday’s National Post I ride the TTC with Montreal author Taras Grescoe, author of the wonderful new book, Straphanger, and head to the London Book Fair for the fourth part of A Publisher’s Year.
The Toronto Public Library Foundation — the system’s charitable arm — is set to launch The New Collection, a membership program determined to draw a new generation of philanthropists — young, urbane, and bookish — into its orbit.
The timing of Gary Hustwit’s new documentary, Urbanized, couldn’t be better considering what’s happening in Toronto. I sat down with the director while he was in town for TIFF. Also, I report from the Page Eight press conference.
Misha Glouberman co-wrote a book with his friend Sheila Heti. It’s called The Chairs Are Where The People Go. It’s funny and strange and hard to describe. I talk to Misha and Sheila about it here.
In Monday’s National Post I talk to transit nerd Mark Ovenden about his latest collection, Railway Maps of the World.
