us conductors “DZEEEEOOOoo! Just as hard as it is to make a theremin sing so it is hard to pull off a novel like this. But Sean Michaels does it. Us Conductors bridges body and soul, science and art, and like theremin music, it’s of this world and magical at the same time.” —Ismet Prcic, author of Shards
Blue Heron books pic The unpretentious atmosphere of Blue Heron Books with its comfy chairs, wood shelving and creaky floors lends itself to a long slow, browsing session, but under that sleepy atmosphere vibrates a strong pulse. The store has a quaint, old-fashioned look with an up tempo vibe, because there is always something happening. The store is a hub for the community and a bastion of calm chaos where everyone is welcome, even the local dogs that drop by with their owners for a treat from the tin kept under the front counter. 62 Brock St. W., Uxbridge, Ontario. 905-852-4282

Blue Heron Books is on my map. How could you fail in the book business with a name like Shelley Macbeth? She runs great events and never disappoints with hundreds in attendance. She knows each of her customers and their tastes. Shelley is that great combination of woman of letters and an entrepreneur. Her staff loves books and thrive on recommendations. — Cathy Gildiner

Books and Brunch with Colin McAdam and Ania Szado

April 7th at Wooden Sticks Golf Club

Tickets $25 (includes full brunch)

A novel about the simple truths that transcend species, about the meaning of family, the lure of belonging, and the capacity for survival. Walt and Judy are deeply in love, but Judy longs for a child and finds that life is holding few surprises. Walt measures all beauty against that of Judy but doesn’t want her eyes to get any sadder. They stay side by side and search for distractions, realizing they may never have a family. Enter Looee, who changes everything.

Colin McAdam has written for Harpers’ and The Walrus. His novel Some Great Thing won the Amazon/Books in Canada First Novel Award and was nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Rogers Writers’ Trust Award, the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize in the U.K. His second novel, Fall, was shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and awarded the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennon Prize. He lives in Toronto.

Studio Saint-Ex is an imaginative, sensual exploration of the creation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince, set in a moodily evocative 1940’s New York. It is an imagined love triangle reminiscent of The Paris Wife. In depicting the breathtaking collision between desire and art, passion and inspiration, Szado spins a tale that will make you view this beloved classic in an entirely different, and very surprising, way. – Melanie Benjamin, author of The Aviator’s Wife.

Szado’s novel Beginning of Was was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize (Best First Book, Canada/Caribbean), nominated for the international Kiriyama Prize, and was named a NOW magazine Top Ten book. She lives in Toronto.
