The July edition of Avenue features a look at why Edmonton has arguably become Canada’s literary capital. Michael Hingston, author of The Dilettantes, looks at the initiative to make Edmonton officially designated as a “City of Writers.” And the print edition also features new original fiction from Janice MacDonald and Todd Babiak.
As a companion, we present a short list of recommended Edmonton books. By no means should this be taken as a complete summary of all things awesome when it comes to Edmonton literary works. Use this as a jumping-off point. We all celebrate the Eat Local movement; we should all take a little bit of our time to Read Local, as well.
