Shelf Exposure, Ep. 2: Kathleen Winter

Kathleen Winter invites us to take a peek at her personal library.

Annabel cover

Kathleen Winter is the author of Annabel (House of Anansi Press), the debut novel shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award for Fiction, the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize, and the Orange Prize for Fiction, and winner of the Thomas Head Raddall Award.

Kathleen agreed to invite us into her private library, now devoid of over 1,000 books she's shed over the years. Yet, there remains more than enough to work with and reveals a vastly-read and curious thinker.

Shelf Exposure invites writers to take a closer look at their bookshelves and to present us with a short list of titles based on a theme of their choosing. Kathleen's theme? Late bloomers.
And once we're done being thoughtful, we enter the lightning round, a chance for us to have some fun with the writers, presenting them with a list of random requests. Books with a vehicle on the cover! Books that begin with "S!" Show us your most self-conscious book! A book you borrowed and have yet to return!

Bring out your books. Show us your goods. Expose your shelf!
