Summer Tomato Tart by Valerie Lugonja

I scroll through a week’s worth of blog posts and podcasts, choose the ingredients that strike my fancy, throw them into this bowl, and watch them coalesce into unexpected themes. And this is what you get:

Oh, my heart
  • Donloree Hoffman encounters a woman straddling the line between life and death.
  • Natasha Chiam puts on the bravest face in the operating room with her child.
  • Trent Wilkie’s son is walking now, which sends him into a fit of anticipating the changes to come.
Where we live
Let me entertain you
  • Jenna Marynowski previews Theatre Network‘s coming season, rising from the ashes of the Roxy Theatre fire.
  • Mike Ross reports on a lovely effort to raise money for the Kirby Legacy Award in honour of a pillar of the Edmonton music scene.
  • Northern Sessions continues to produce beautiful videos of Edmonton musicians, this time with Lindsey Walker.
  • Lindy Pratch tours through the books on the Giller Prize longlist.
  • On the Wright Reads podcast, guest host Alexis Kienlen examines the strange and beautiful Bear by Marian Engel.
  • The Movie Jerks have a pretty crazy conversation with Wes Borg about monkeys in movies.
Hockey all the time
