REVIEWER PICKS 2014

kane

Throughout the year, a cadre of dedicated reviewers wade hip-deep through the ceaseless torrents of upcoming, not-yet-vetted books. Some they love, some they like, and some just aren't for them. But now that the year's coming to a close, the faucet has been somewhat cinched, the torrent's calmed, and a few of our reviewers used the docility of the season to look back at everything they read and hip us to what really stood out.

REVIEW: BIRDMAN

bonnie

"Every city has a story, but what does Guelph have tucked away in its unassuming corners? David J. Knight's fascinating anthology Guelph Versifiers of the 19th Century scratches the surface of the delicious secrets of our city. How better to learn about the origins of our city than from some of the first people who lived and breathed in Guelph?"READ MORE


ON HOLIDAY MOVIES

bonnie

"I'll bet you the Terry's Chocolate Orange from my stocking that we - us North Americans - rewatch holiday movies more than we do the films we'd cite as our favourites. Under oath, I wouldn't claim to 'like' Home Alone, but I've probably seen it at least once - sometimes twice or thrice, watching with different levels of attention, inebriation, or satiation - every year since 1990. That's in the neighbourhood of 50 times... What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us?"READ MORE


REVIEW: CLOUD

kane

"Eric McCormack is a writer of exceptional range and talent. You approach his writing innocently enough, getting absorbed in an intriguing story, until you come to an edge in the story. Peel back the edge to reveal another layer, and another, until you finally come to realize that it's layers all the way down."READ MORE


$18, 000 RAISED TO COMBAT EBOLA


Guelph jazz legends Joni NehRita and Jane Ellenton provided the music. Former president of Medecins Sans Frontier and Guelph resident James Orbinski delivered a fascinating speech on Ebola and the politics of global health. Co-sponsors Chris Bedard and Janice Bacon from CIBC Wood Gundy in Guelph provided the food. The event sold out and $18000.00 was raised for MSF to combat Ebola. Talk about community power! WATCH
