Meeting Dani Couture this month was a pleasure. After a long exchange of email tag we finally met at Union Station in Toronto. Both of us were on time and happy to finally meet. After a customary handshake, smiles, and small talk, we jumped into real talk about life, writing, breaking bones, our youth, and how to record her without getting into trouble.
After being kicked off a bench and being told by security that we could not record Dani reading in Union Station (the train station) we hit the end of the subway platform and did our thing.
