Exciting news!

The Babble Book Club presents a special discussion with Lynn Coady, author of The Antagonist, subsequently our newest selection, on Sunday, March 4, 12:00 p.m. PST/3:00 p.m. EST.

That's right, author Lynn Coady has so kindly agreed to join us on the babble forum to answer questions about her novel The Antagonist and impart some knowledge and insight into her writing.

During the weeks leading up to our discussion, we will keep the discussion going, and let you, the Babble Book Club readers, post and shape your questions for Lynn about any facet of her book. On February 26, I will compile those questions, send them off to Lynn, and then on March 4 she will personally join us on the babble forum page for an hour to discuss your questions!

For those unfamiliar with using the babble forum, here is a great source on how to sign up for this free service that will allow you to participate and interact with all the other Babble Book Club readers and Lynn Coady as well!

So get reading and chatting about your questions on the discussion page because there is still lots of time left before we have our first ever author-reader conversation with the Babble Book Club! Wow! And as always feel free to check out our Facebook group for other great links and comment! 

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
