Open Book Toronto: New Episode of Type

Artist, Leanne Davies and Tundra author, Linda Zeman-Spaleny interview each other on the latest episode of Type.

What is Type?

Type is an Open Book series of “co-interviews” in which authors are paired with creative people in other fields of art and culture such as fashion, art, culinary arts, music, film/TV, theatre, dance and more.

In each segment, our guests open up a discussion by asking each other about their respective work and inspirations. Full of natural curiosity and without any pre-set questions or previous encounters, this series is filled with the type of spontaneous, engaging conversation that can happen at really good dinner parties, cocktail parties and other chatty gatherings…and then stick in your head for days.

Type is presented on Novel-tv, a new web channel offered exclusively by Open Book and produced by Matt Austin of Spontaneously Combusted Films. The new episode can also be viewed on Open Book Toronto or on their YouTube channel.

Thank you to the Open Book Toronto team and to Matt for their wonderful work!
