The Podcasts

This week, Carole gets inspired by Olympic spectacle and finds common ground (snow, maybe?) between bold ski-jumpers, elegant ice-dancers and creative writers on a roll. Also on our menu: "Downward Drifting," a short story by Patricia Schultheis which threads seven decades of history through the fabric of a woman's life -- in four pages. Two great British books (old and new, comic and tragic) round out our menu. We're looking forward to showcasing and reviewing books by up-and-coming authors. Send your suggestions to cgian@rogers.com or post them on our Facebook page (Words To Go Podcast). And visit Carole's website at www.carolegiangrande.com.

Join us for a menu of literary take-out treats: Rebecca Rosenblum's short story "Do" leads us down the aisle through the frivolous and poignant moments of a wedding. Carole reflects on writers' work: computers as crystal balls, and abandoned manuscripts that come back to life. Not strange enough? Try two not-to-be-missed classic novels featuring giant mammals, each one speaking to our environmental crisis — the novels, not the critters. In Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, the whale gets the last word, while Marian Engel's Bear helps a woman uncover her connection with the natural world.
