My goal with The Biblio File is to engage authors, and others connected with 'the book,' in variously entertaining, informative, stimulating, funny, intense conversation. If you have comments or questions about the program please email me at notabenebeale@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you.

Listen here to my conversation with Craig Poile, co-owner of Collected Works, an innovative independent bookstore based in Ottawa, Canada (now closed). We talk, among others things, about a rudimentary webcam-teleconferencing system dubbed ‘Great Talking Head,’ that Craig has set up to get big name authors, such as Julian Barnes and Peter Carey, and their fans, together in his bookstore; about bookseller-publisher relations, in-store writing workshops and print-on-demand.
