The passing of Salome Bey, Canada’s First Lady of the Blues:

Salome Bey was known widely as 'Canada's First Lady of the Blues.’ The Grammy-nominated Bey was a multi-disciplinary performer and honorary member of the Order of Canada who achieved legendary status during her life due to contributions in both music and theatre.

CBC q: “On Aug. 8 of this year, Salome Bey, known as Canada's first lady of the blues, died at the age of 86. The American-born singer left behind an artistic legacy that echoes through the theatres of Broadway, the jazz cafes of Paris, and the stages of Toronto — the city that she made her home in the ‘60s. Her daughters, musicians SATE and tUkU, joined guest host Talia Schlanger for a chat about their mother's journey to becoming one of the most beloved pioneers of Black Canadian theatre and music”. Talia was very moved.

Future Library Project:

Authors are leaving a legacy for the future. A forest has been planted in Norway, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in 100 years’ time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unread and unpublished, until the year 2114. The manuscripts will be presented in a specially designed room in the new public library in Oslo. Writers to date include Margaret Atwood (2014), David Mitchell (2015), Sjón (2016), Elif Shafak (2017), Han Kang (2018), Karl Ove Knausgård (2019), and Ocean Vuong (2020).

Visit the Future Library web site to see what this fascinating project, initiated by Katie Paterson, is all about. It is a stunning web site as well.
