Interview with Phyl Smallman & Danielle Hubbard about Great first paragraphs in books

There are books whose first paragraphs capture your attention with such immediacy that you can’t help but keep reading.  I and Phyl (a mystery writer) and Danielle (a librarian) talk about a handful of books with terrific openings and how they prefigure the entire story in only a few lines.  This was taped at the SaltSpring Public Library on August 22, 2014.
