Rags! Rags! Paper and Rags!

Posted on Sep 20, 2019 | 0 comments

Paper and Rags, sequel to Bottle and Glass, is set to launch in Kingston on Sunday, Dec. 8th, 2PM-4PM at the Kingston Brew Pub.  A Toronto launch is taking place on Sunday, Nov. 10th, 2:30PM – 4:30PM at the Supermarket Restaurant and Bar in Kensington Market.

As a special lead-in to the launch, I plan to make paper in the old-fashioned way, by hand, from cotton and linen rags provided by friends, family, readers, writers – anyone who is interested. Once I have a stack of paper made, Vincent Perez of Everlovin’ Press, using a traditional letterpress, will print a new, commemorative front page of the first Kingston Gazette (Sept. 25th 1810 – a paper copy of this edition no longer exists – see below for more info). If all goes well, I’ll have these freshly printed Gazettes available at the launch alongside the book: free with a copy of Paper and Rags, or $10 without, until supplies last.

Please send me token pieces of your (clean!) rags, clothing scraps, discarded paper, anything that is cotton, linen, or recyclable RagsRags1paper, preferably un-dyed. For example, you might send a fragment of a tattered t-shirt from a favourite vacation, or a portion of an outgrown baby blanket, or a favourite poem on yellowed paper, or an old love letter. You get the idea. Items with historical or personal relevance are most welcome. The more meaningful the component parts, the richer the provenance of the resulting paper. When making your contribution, I encourage you to include a note indicating the significance of your contribution. And please indicate whether you are interested in purchasing the finished product so that I know how many to make. All those who pre-order will find their names somewhere in the commemorative text of the newspaper.

Please make your contribution before Oct. 20th to allow enough time for processing.

I will send out updates in the coming weeks, including more details of the actual book launch. Please forward to anyone who might be interested and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Posted on Sep 30, 2014 | 0 comments

The Stoicism Today blog has just published a new book:  Stoicism Today: Selected Writings, available now as a Kindle e-book and paperback.
 
http://blogs.exeter.ac.uk/stoicismtoday/the-book/
 
About the book: ‘From Stoic ethics to emotions, from Stoic mayors and mindfulness to practical philosophy, parenting, psychotherapy and prisons, from Star Trek and Socrates to Stoic lawyers, literature and living in general, this book brings together a wide-ranging collection of reflections on living the Stoic life today. You’ll read advice on coping with adversity, reflections on happiness and the good life and powerful personal testimonies of putting Stoicism into practise. But you’ll also read about the links between Stoicism and psychotherapy, Stoicism and mindfulness meditation and the unexpected places Stoicism can pop up in modern culture. This book will be of interest to both academics and non-academics alike and is about the varied ways in which the 2,300 year old philosophy as a way of life remains relevant to the concerns and needs of the present day.’
