An update of the interviews and features on Open Book: Toronto this week.

The Dirty Dozen, with Anusree Roy

"If I am playing a board game, you can be sure that I am trying to cheat! I have no idea why, but I hide cards, steal Monopoly money and work hard to cheat at board games!" Read more

On Writing, with Benjamin Wood

"My passion for music has always been more visceral than intellectual. I was drawn to teaching myself to play an instrument as a teenager, not because I wanted to comprehend the mechanics of music, but because I saw it as emotional release." Read more

The Dirty Dozen with David Spaner

"I was active in the Youth International Party (the Yippies), which believed activism could be fun and funny, and I worked on the New York-based newspaper The Yipster Times." Read more

Open Book: Toronto intern, Danielle Webster, sees what's cooking at Good Egg, a bookstore in Kensington Market purely devoted to the one thing we can't live without — food.

Open Book's writer-in-residence, C.B. Forrest, did a Q & A with mystery writer R.J. Harlick, commented on an essay by Richard Ford, takes a look inside big book awards and introduces us to David Whellams.

To keep up with C.B. Forrest, visit his writer-in-residence home.
