Off the Eaten Path - Montreal!

I recently visited Montreal for the Montréal en Lumière Festival, and was treated to some AMAZING hidden gem meals.

In case you missed the Wheels section of the Toronto Star this weekend, here is my Off the Eaten Path column about that trip.

The restaurants:

Art Works

Any artist can tell you that there's always hard work, pain, and lots of stress, behind every success.

That's the subject of the new book, Art Works.  It's part of the Well Aware series from  Pearson publishing - designed to get kids in schools to talk about mental health.

Laura Carlin and I got to interview some amazing artists (with links to their websites).
