"Books are the best prescription when someone you love is ailing, or when you are under the weather yourself. The ailment need not be physical: you might be sick of your own life, or of working, or of the endless cold rain that is summer in Edmonton. As opposed to the endless arctic wasteland that is winter in Edmonton… not that I don’t love the city madly. And I love these books, too. They will give you the only true remedies for illness: transport, delight, distraction, and a soupçon of schadenfreude." Marina Endicott's second novel, Good to a Fault, won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book, Canada/Caribbean region and was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Her new novel, The Little Shadows, about a sister vaudeville act touring the prairies in 1912, will be published by Doubleday this fall.More Info
Margaret Writes: In 2008, I wrote a book about Canadian food and farming called Apples to Oysters: A Food Lover’s Tour of Canadian Farms. It captures the craziest, most delicious journey of my life – exploring Canada’s food regions by visiting farms, working alongside farmers and eating at their tables. That adventure, along with my favourite Canadian books on food and farming listed below, made me realize that saving our local food systems may well be the most important thing we do for future generations. http://www.margaretwebb.com/More Info
