CBC All in a Day Book Panel - August 2019 by Cat_Biblio

Book recommendations from OPL's Ann Archer and Sean Wilson of the Ottawa International Writers Festival, presented monthly on CBC's All in a Day with Alan Neal.


The election writ hasn’t been dropped yet, but I am being deluged with political e-mails every day. So I thought it would be a nice respite to listen to the All in a Day book panel talk about reading for the beach. So it was a very unpleasant surprise when Sean Wilson started promoting global warming hysteria, recommending a collection of dystopian novellas about the world recovering climate catastrophe. This is his recommended beach reading?! Seriously. At least OPL’s Ann Archer didn’t get into the act. Give it a break, please, at least until November.

Hello baldand,
The All in a Day Book Panel is meant to help Ottawans discover something new to read. The recommendations are made by two people who do a lot of reading, and they touch on a different subject matter every month.
