SEA AND BE SCENE And HEARD

Broadcast Date – June 23, 2021 Oh my goodness what a treat it was to finally connect with today’s guest. She certainly has given us plenty to celebrate over the years – from her award-winning and best-selling books, to her many speaking engagements to here darling and delightful book store – Mabel Murple’s Book Shoppe & Dreamery.  There’s always something creative on the go in her world, and so after a decade’s worth of waiting we’ve got plenty of ground to cover – including her process for writing, her sentiments where social media is concerned and the moving moments she’s shared with folks who have found their way to her River John book shop after a lifetime of loving her work. We’ll also get her take on destiny, hear how she happened upon the love of her life and learn which BIG time East Coast Artist inspired a book about “Monkey’s in her Kitchen” when he was just a little boy . Plus we’ll get to First Things First, play a long overdue round of INsights IN 10 and even spin some of her favourite tunes along the way. So with all that ahead we best get to it.

05 Living with Dying Part 2 with Sheree Fitch and Lorna Crozier

Writers Festival Radio

We seem to avoid thinking about mortality, or talking about loss, but it is an unavoidable fact that we all face the loss of a loved one, and will each confront that truth in different ways. If grief is unavoidable, what is the best way to make peace with it? Part Two of Living With Dying features Sheree Fitch in conversation with Neil Wilson, and Lorna Crozier in conversation with CBC’s Sandra Abma. In the wake of her son's unexpected death, author and storyteller Sheree Fitch wrote it all down, penning an honest, lyrical memoir with words to stir heart. You Won't Always Be This Sad invites readers on a journey through grief towards hope, guided by the immeasurable depths of a mother's love. Told with unflinching honesty and fierce tenderness, Through the Garden by Lorna Crozier is a deeply affecting portrait of a long partnership and a clear-eyed account of the impact of a serious illness, writing as consolation, and the enduring significance of poetry. When Lorna Crozier and Patrick Lane met at a poetry workshop in 1976, they had no idea that they would go on to write more than forty books between them, balancing their careers with their devotion to each other, and to their beloved cats, for decades. Then, in January 2017, their life together changed unexpectedly when Patrick became seriously ill. At once a spirited account of the past and a poignant reckoning with the present, it is, above all, an extraordinary and unforgettable love story.A limited number of signed books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
