New in The Bookninja Magazine today is a discussion piece called Home Turf — between long time Ninja Lynn Coady and new recruit Christy Ann Conlin, and conceived in response to a previous Magazine piece, Rachael Preston’s Miss Appropriation in Fall 2006. Preston had examined the joys and pitfalls of writing about places you’ve never been. Now the locals respond. Cape Bretonner Coady, whose childhood and novels both are set in the East, and Conlin, a native of Nova Scotia, look at the idea of us CFAs (come from aways) gobbling up all the good stories, and then go deeper and deeper into the whole issue of “place”. Upcoming in the next week or so are two podcasts with poets Simon Armitage and Dennis Lee.
