Alice Munro

Great story on Alice Munro today in the NY Times Magazine. Her new book Runaway is available, of course, from Northwest Passages.

In the coming weeks and months, I’ll be blogging more about Canadian lit and especially Northwest Passages, a company that Rob Stocks and I created and launched way back in 1996, when the internet was a much different place. Today, NWP sells books to readers around the world and is run nearly entirely by our other partner (and Rob’s wife) Sarah Bagshaw. She is doing an amazing job keeping NWP going as Rob’s is busy running MediaWeb Solutions and time is frequently consumed by my duties at UVM and with family responsibilities.

English 086 blog now operational

Blogging is underway at my new blog for English 086: Critical Approaches to Literature. In the coming days and weeks, I’ll be reflecting on how blogs are working with that class and what potential blogs might have here at UVM and in English courses.
