And that's why this article made me very happy:
Organizers of an unconventional tribute to beloved Canadian author Carol Shields are set to break ground in Winnipeg on Monday.
The late author's family, friends and fans will gather in the city's King's Park for a lunchtime sod-turning ceremony before construction of the Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth.
I may need to make a pilgrimage to Winnipeg. Road trip! Who's with me?
*I'm so sorry. No one's more disappointed in me than me.
only if you drive
I bought this book at my favorite bookstore in London (John Sandoe Books in Chelsea) about 8 or 9 years ago (I think) and loved it, too.
Dang, I don't have my license. I was hoping you'd drive, Quillhill.
(veering wildly off topic) Did you know there's a maze at the Van Dusen Botanic Gardens?
That's freaking awesome! I've never felt compelled to read Carol Shields, but now I'm interested.
PS ** That's a very cool headline, Doppelganger, and I hope if you ever visit my blog you remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery :-)
Sounds interesting. I added it to my wishlist. I've had a Carol Shields novel (can't remember the title)in my bookcase for years, but never read it. Now I'll have to look for it and give it a try.
Now I've got to hunt for this novel so I can see the maze design! I've only read The Stone Diaries, which I liked very much. My Canadian coworker loaned me Dressing Up For The Carnival, which I haven't read yet. I also want to read her last novel, Unless. So happy there's a memorial for her, and one that's so creative.
The first sounds like it's maybe a Robin Cook book?
A list of his books is here:
Each has it's own link to a plot synopsis, but rather than look through them all, I thought one of the titles might ring a bell?
Oh, what a great idea! I will have to remember so I can take a trek out to see this one of these days.
