Staff Picks for the Holidays: The Cello Suites

The Cello Suites, by Eric Siblin

Recommended by Fred Horler, Institutional Marketing Manager, House of Anansi Press and Groundwood Books

“I am a big fan of The Cello Suites by Eric Siblin. Being a Rock ’n’ Roll fan who enjoys an occasional evening of classical music (if it comes with a good book and a glass of port) I loved Eric’s odyssey into the world of Bach, Casals and the melodious cello. Now I’m just waiting for the movie.
