NEWSTALK 1010: MUSICIAN Ansley Simpson AND AUTHOR Simon Beecroft!
This week on the Richard Crouse Show we meet Ansley Simpson, a Toronto-based Anishinaabe singer-songwriter. Nominated for two Indigenous Music Awards and winner of “Best New Artist,” on November 6 and November 12, she appears as part of the 13-episode AMPLIFY series on APTN. The show has a fascinating premise… invite an Indigenous songwriter to find a piece of Indigenous inspiration (whether it be a book, art piece, belief, etc.) and write a song about it.
Then from his home in London , England via Zoom, New York Times–bestselling author Simon Beecroft joins us to talk about his latest, “The Peanuts Book: A Visual History of the Iconic Comic Strip.” In this celebration of Schulz and his beloved work, explore rarely seen sketches, influential comic strips, and collectors’ artifacts. Pore over evolving artworks of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the gang. Chart the rich history of Peanuts as it grew to become the world’s favorite comic, and travel from 1950 to the present day, from California to Japan. Every page of this visual guide is an exhibition to treasure. Discover the enduring and nostalgic charm of Peanuts in this stunning anniversary book. With a foreword by Stephen Colbert.
