After a few month hiatus, I’m once again working on author interviews on TBPL Off the Shelf, the Thunder Bay Public Library’s blog. This month I interviewed Marianne Jones, a local Thunder Bay author. We talk about what inspired her literary novel, Maud and Me, and why painting appears so often in her writing. You can find the interview here.
It also looks like I also neglected to post about the last few interviews here on this blog. In August 2022, I interviewed Brent Scollie, a historical nonfiction writer. In September, we ran two interviews, first with the local author Nancy Mauro, who wrote a fictional tale about the origins of the famous Thunder Bay pastry, the persian. The second interview was with Lorene Shyba and Magda Stroinska, the editor and translator of Перша Книжечка / The Little Book, which is an old Ukrainian reader that was rereleased last year with proceeds helping the Ukrainian people. And finally in October, I interviewed La Carmina about her new book, The Little Book of Satanism.
So that makes this month’s interview with Marianne Jones the ninety-eighth interview on TBPL Off the Shelf! (I think I lost count somewhere along the way – I thought it was the ninety-seventh).
