Well, folks this is it. The last book club meeting of the year. I'm off for the rest of the month so I hope you'll have a nice holiday season and get some reading in where possible. That's my plan, anyway. All of the things I just said sound a bit more heartfelt and homespun if you read them with Wilford Brimley's voice in your head. Go on and try it. It's the right thing to do. Thora Birch once thought so.
As I said last week, we’ve read some cool selections in 2012 for this book club of ours and I thought it might be insightful to reconnect with some of the authors we encountered over the past months, to tell us about something great that they read. Today, Sam Sutherland, author of one of my top books of 2012, Perfect Youth: The Birth of Canadian Punk, discusses NoMeansNo: Going Nowhere, a new book by Halifax's Mark Black. Check out the video above and see what he has to say.
