Today’s the day I decide which books to take to the cottage. Despite having a growing stack that includes Scotch River by Linda Little and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Saffan Foer, I’ve taken a couple of books by Chris Bohjalian out of the library, having very much enjoyed his Midwives a few years ago. I’m looking forward to a month where hours of my days (instead of just minutes at bedtime) will be spent reading. (I’ve worked hard this year!) By the time I return home I will, of course, be itching to get back to my writing. But in the meantime. . .
Kathy Stinson is the author of the classic Red Is Best and the award-winning The Man with the Violin. Her wide range of titles includes picture books, non-fiction, young adult fiction, historical fiction, horror, biography, series books, and short stories. She has met with her readers in every province and territory of Canada, in the United States, Britain, Liberia, and Korea. She lives in a small town in Ontario.
Hope you've enjoyed a decadent month at the cottage. In the midst of a number of gigs this summer, I finally had a chance to read Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime". Loved it!
