Upcoming Highlights

Books On the Radio Monthly

March's digest from the Books on the Radio Project
From Sean Cranbury, this is the March 2015 edition of the show and today we’re featuring poets Billeh Nickerson, Nikki Reimer, and Amber McMillan reading their work live at events in Vancouver in recent months. We’ll also be featuring songs by Myriam Gendron and her recent collaboration with Dorothy Parker.

The first recordings that you’ll be hearing were recorded at the Cottage Bistro on Main Street in Vancouver on March 11th as a part of the ongoing Twisted Poets Series. Both Billeh and Nikki read their work that night. i have edited down Billeh’s reading at his request, removed a few of his more recent pieces that he’s still working on while I have left Nikki’s reading in its entirety. The Amber McMillan reading is from the recent Real Vancouver Writers’ Series fifth Anniversary event at happened in Chinatown on February 28th. Amber made the trip in from Protection Island for the event and hers was the final reading of the night and it’s a really excellent performance.

The Miriam Gendron performance is an interesting one. I just purchased the record from a record store on Commercial Drive and it’s a beauty. Miriam is a book dealer from Montreal who found a copy of Dorothy Parker’s poems and was so struck by them that she wrote songs using Parker’s poetry as the lyrics. She then recorded the songs in her apartment in 2013. Really excellent work.
