Interview with Allyson Latta

Thursday, May 21, 2009


Well, it's been a while since I've had a moment to write. and so many great football games have come and gone - in the original sense of the word. Man U is about to wrap up another spectacular year - goddamn them - Chelsea have been robbed once again and yet I'm thinking you reap what you sow - and John Madden sadly retired from the other football, a big loss in every sense of the word and Tony Kornheiser rightly retired from Monday Night Football - he is what he is in his own realm and we love him for that and John Grudin steps into a role I think he'll excel at. The World Cup is breaths away and the air is warming up - all is good.

As bad as I am at self-promotion, she says with a blog in her name - my new book Animal will be launched in Vancouver May 30th, the name of the bar escapes me at this moment but I'll post it later. This Sunday May 24th, I'm reading at the Steam Whistle Brewery in Toronto from 3-4 as part of the brewery's Open Door event, where they allow the public to venture into where the magic is made to check out the architecture, eat fries, drink beer and listen to literature in all its forms - who can ask for more - beer, food, literature and architecture - nice. And on June 30th, I'm launching Animal at the new McNally Robinson bookstore at the Shops at Don Mills.

I hope you can all attend.

How about those Jays!

I work tomorrow! I hate that I'm missing your readings.
Soon. If not, I insist on a private session!

Hello Alexandra!
I haven't seen you in quite some time but thought I would drop a line.

Congratulations on your new book! I am going to order and have a read.

I was surfing the net and was thinking of taking another writing course to inspire me and I discovered you are teaching at U of T now! Good for you.
I have also been inspired to start a blog so I thought I would let you know about that as well. Any ideas about how to get people to actually read my blog?

Besides the blog I haven't written much lately but with summer coming I am going to try to get back into it. You are very inspirational!!
Sue Tromanhauser....(I do hope you remember me!!!)
