Raincoast Books - Podcast Edition 8 - Walking After Midnight by Katy Hutchinson

Tue, 07 Nov 2006 18:15:14 -0800

Walking After Midnight : One Woman's Journey Through Murder, Justice and Forgiveness,  by Katy Hutchinson

Buy the book online: Walking After Midnight is available at: Amazon.ca or  Chapters.Indigo.ca  or check this list of independent retailers.

This podcast is an exclusive conversation with the author recorded October 7th, 2006 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

About the Book:
On New Year’s Eve in 1997, Bob McIntosh was murdered while trying to break up a teenagers’ party at a friend’s house. His wife, Katy, was left a widow with four-year-old twins. In the midst of her grief, and with remarkable courage and grace, Katy began an amazing journey of forgiveness. She recognized the need to educate teens about the risks arising from the combination of youth, alcohol and lack of supervision. She began speaking to schools and other groups about social responsibility, restorative justice and the transformative power of forgiveness.

Katy waited for five years while the police uncovered and convicted Bob’s killers. Ryan Aldridge was charged with Bob’s murder in 2002. Astoundingly, Katy reached out to Ryan, and they have since forged a powerful and unique relationship. Ryan has now joined Katy in her speaking engagements, and Katy supported his recent successful appeal for early parole.

Walking After Midnight is the extraordinary story of a life interrupted by unthinkable tragedy, and of Katy’s commitment to turning the horror into a transformative gift. It offers a means for all of us to embrace fully the concepts of forgiveness and restorative justice.

This is a great chance to meet a young new author before the rest of the world discovers him.

Nathan Sellyn, author of Indigenous Beasts, is hosting a launch on the 18th of April at Fiction tapas (in Vancouver, Canada).

Here's Nathan's note about the party:

"I’m not a fan of self-promotion, but I love a good party. Thus I’d be thrilled if you’d join me at Fiction on the night of April 18th.
Fiction is a funky little place on Broadway with a great selection of beverages and a fi ne menu. The plan is to show up at 7, have me read
just before 8, and then put a playlist on and have a good time. This invitation is open to all, so I’d encourage you to drag along as many people as
you possibly can. All the best, ns"

If you're in the Vancouver area on the 18th, get yourself over there !

Raincoast Books - Podcast Edition 4 - Picking up the Pieces by Sherri Magee and Kathy Scalzo

Wed, 12 Apr 2006 18:38:38 -0700

www.raincoast.com

Picking up the Pieces; Moving Forward after Surviving Cancer  , by Sherri Magee, PhD, and Kathy Scalzo, MSOD.

There are over 11 million cancer survivors in North America, and every year doctors diagnose one million new cases.  Most survivors emerge disoriented and scarred.  The side effects are not only physical: emotional and financial instability, changed relationships and spiritual questions leave many feeling overwhelmed.  Survivors speak of feeling fragmented, of needing to 'pick up the pieces' of their lives once the struggle with cancer is over.

Practical, reassuring and informative, Picking Up the Pieces is based on years of research and interviews with hundreds of survivors.  The authors guide survivors through a unique process with daily practices that build a bridge from hospital to home and beyond.

This podcast, the 4th from Raincoast Books, features authors Sherri Magee and Kathy Scalzo, talking about what inspired them to write this book.

The podcast runs 5:03.   It is attached to this feed, or you can also download it here.
If you'd rather get it from iTunes, and have the iTunes software installed, click here to go directly to the Raincoast iTune pages.

If you're interested in buying Picking Up the Pieces, you can get it online right now by following these links to   Amazon.ca or  Chapters.Indigo.ca

Reader Reviews
“Early in my career as an oncologist, I would enthusiastically proclaim ‘your cancer is controlled. You’re back to normal.’ My patients oriented me to the understanding that you never return to the ‘old normal’ after cancer, and that healing is about creating the 'new normal.' Magee and Scalzo provide essential directions for navigating the course between the old and the new normal, and for living well after cancer.” —Simon Sutcliffe, clinical oncologist and President, BC Cancer Agency

Raincoast Books - Podcast Edition 3 - Indigenous Beasts by Nathan Sellyn.

Tue, 21 Mar 2006 18:22:46 -0800

www.raincoast.com


“My characters reveal that Canadians can be just as despicable as our American counterparts; I want to provide a ‘warts and all’ perspective, or as my grandfather said, ‘plenty of drugs, sex, strippers and violence.” – Nathan Sellyn

Indigenous Beasts is a collection of short stories from this young new writer. 
He’s an extraordinary storyteller, and these stories are raw and seething, intense with despair and depravity. They are bloody and beautiful and full of wisdom, and their pathetic heroes struggle towards some unattainable and off-kilter moral standard.

Buy it now at  Amazon.ca or at Chapters.Indigo.ca

Indigenous Beasts, Raincoast Books ISBN 1-55192-927-9

- Nathan will be featured on Book Television  March 26th

Raincoast Books - Podcast Edition 2 - Indigenous Beasts by Nathan Sellyn

Wed, 15 Mar 2006 19:09:35 -0800

www.raincoast.com

Indigenous Beasts is a collection of short stories from Nathan Sellyn.
This podcast is an introduction to Nathan. We'll be featuring a full length interview next week, available here.

About the book:
Indigenous Beasts is a chilling collection of stories from Nathan Sellyn — an extraordinary storyteller and a bold, young writer whose work is energetic, shocking and disturbing. These stories glimpse into the lives of young men who are intriguing, seductive and sometimes despicable, and are lost in their efforts to make sense of their relationships, both with women — girlfriends, mothers, strippers — and men — fathers, co-workers, dealers. These stories are raw and seething, intense with despair and depravity. They are bloody and beautiful and full of wisdom, and their pathetic heroes struggle towards some unattainable and off-kilter moral standard.

For more on the book, please visit http://www.raincoast.com/indigenousbeasts
You can buy the book online now at:
Amazon.ca or atChapters.Indigo.ca

Next week, the full interview with Nathan Sellyn and more readings from Indigenous Beasts.

The Highest Tide, Jim Lynch, introduction

Raincoast Books is proud to present a special podcast with Jim Lynch, author of The Highest Tide.

The Highest Tide tells the story of thirteen-year-old Miles O’Malley who lives on Puget Sound and knows everything there is to know about the sea and its creatures. When he becomes the first person to sight a live giant squid he is hailed as some sort of prophet. The media descend and everyone wants to hear what Miles has to say. But Miles is just a self-described “increasingly horny, speed-reading thirteen-year-old insomniac” who navigates the mysterious world of adults as the strange events continue over the summer, culminating in the highest tide in 100 years.

This is a clip from the forth-coming podcast.

Jim's podcast was created in Vancouver during the Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival.  Find out more about Jim' book at http://www.raincoast.com/highest-tide/index.html.  For more information about Raincoast books please visit www.raincoast.com
