In personal news, after nearly 15 years on the air, I’m taking a break to tackle a new challenge: motherhood… ❤️ So bye-bye for now to the QC bureau!

In a media landscape where discussion of books is dwindling, CBC Arts has given me a monthly column to talk about… books. What I'm reading, what I'm thinking about it, its social context, etc. My first column is about Indigenous horror. Check it out:https://t.co/BsACNiP5Wt
