A Literary Atlas of Canada
Published Tuesday, June 21, 2005 by CCAer | E-mail this post
’s week-night sometimes thought-provoking Ideas
is running a 10 episode program on the Literary Atlas of Canada
, hosted by Noah Richler. It focuses on the impact of Canadian fiction writers on the Canadian view of place - in the broad and specific sense. I think this series has been running for a while because I recall hearing bits and pieces of The Company Town
episode. A book of the same title is scheduled to appear in January of 2006, published by McClelland and Stewart
. I daresay the focus is more on the literary aspect than the atlas. One wonders how many maps will appear in the book.
