It’s August, the month of Canadian author Robertson Davies’s birth, which means that Robertson Davies Reading Weekend is coming! From Friday to Sunday, August 28 to 30, post about any book or books you read by this magical author, and come back here to let me know about it. You can also use the hashtag #ReadingRobertsonDavies to help us find you.
I’m planning to re-read and post about The Cunning Man, Davies’s last novel, which explores the life of an unconventional Toronto doctor. I recall it as having some very interesting things to say about the art of healing, and since I read the essay “Can a Doctor Be a Humanist?” in The Merry Heart last year, I look forward to revisiting this fictional perspective on the same theme.
Will you be joining us? And what would you like to read?
