In this episode we explore the ways in which we can travel with books, music, and ideas when we might not be able to journey physically. We look at Hugh Kenner’s concept of the elsewhere community, ideas of sonic postcards and the sense of home. Amy discusses her thwarted travel plans of 2020 to Ireland and Greece and her Macedonian family heritage. Featured interview is with London based musician and sound artist Belle Chen, and the Things Found in Books creative response is a wild radio play set on a library cruise ship with Ballarat’s Sophie Livitsanis. Sarah Comyn also talks about her favourite bookish spots in Dublin.Book seeds:Hugh Kenner. The Elsewhere Community: A grand tour of the world and the mind.

Here we check in with Readings Books in Melbourne and look to 20th and 21st century booksellers in Ballarat exploring Ewin’s Booksellers and the newest bookshop in town, Sothis Books and Sartorial for our regular indie book feature. We also enjoy our very first creative piece for the segment Things Found in Books from Ballarat storyteller extraordinaire Erin McCuskey. Our book seeds here are somewhat tangential but are the little teeny stickers of sorts that you might find in the inner front cover of an old book- known as booksellers tickets or labels.Podcast set up and first episode is proudly supported by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, and administered in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria.Guests featured:  Chris Gordon, Readings Books events coordinator- https://www.readings.com.au/profile/chris-gordon# Rex Hardware and H-Squared Studios- https://h2studios.net/Check out one of his current archiving projects- https://www.facebook.com/Lost-in-16mm-103572418261614 Erin McCuskey aka Madame Yum of Yum Studio, artist, writer and filmmaker- https://www.instagram.com/madameyum Alex Zety, of the former Pot of Gold Books and Collectibles Christine Crawshaw, Sothis Books & Sartorial- https://www.facebook.com/sothisbooksballarat/ Music featured: Ellen Sorensen- Minerva’s Idea original composition for Gather-http://shadowfeet.bandcamp.com Carlo Onzo Trio Live Recording by Rex Hardware at the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute February 2020-12-01 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk6CoQtNf7JIUHw8uaKWkHw?feature=emb_ch_name_ex Adam Simmons Creative Music Ensemble Prologue-https://www.adamsimmons.com/bands/adam-simmons-creative-music-ensemble/  Sound engineering: Dave Byrne, Iridium Audio        Podcast logo: Tiffany Titshallhttps://www.tiffanytitshall.com/ Find @minervasbooksandideas and @amytinderbox on social media MORE INFO & SUPPORT THE SHOW-  https://minervasbooks.com/gather-podcast/
