"It's not usual that an Israeli would start working on Canadian subjects as much as I have been doing,' Schaub says, CanLit first became an interest of hers while she was working at the Free University of Brussels, whose Centre for Canadian Studies had just opened. It was there that she found her eventual thesis subject, Mavis Gallant. CanLit continues to interest Schaub because of the resonance its main themes have for an Israeli audience. She identifies several parallels between Canada and Israel (among them, the presence of two main communities, as well as a varied immigration history) as links that make the themes of multiculturalism, identity, and community particularly relevant to her students in Haifa." Cassandra Drudi, Quill & Quire, September 2006.
"I have just finished having a wander through Reading Writers Reading. I am at a loss for words... This is such a wonderful, encouraging, uplifting, joyous ode to reading and books. This is a book you want to keep on your coffee table and your night table, a book to have close by when you only have a couple of minutes to read but want to be affirmed in how wonderful the written word can be. Everyone and anyone could take something memorable away from this fantastic book." Dot Middlemass, Kate Walker & Company, September 2006
"Danielle Schaub, a teacher of Canadian fiction and autobiographical writing, has brought together two of her passions in this book: photography and literature. The result is an interesting collection which will appeal to students, to teachers, to book clubs, to anyone who loves to read....Much of the charm of this book comes from the photographs of the individual authors which accompany their words....It is enjoyable to let one's eyes drift from the writing to the photo and back again - almost like having a conversation. Recommended." Ann Ketcheson, CM: Canadian Review of Materials, Volume XIII, No.3
"Reading Writers Reading is a big, heavy coffee-table book with a cherry-red jacket. Inside are black-and-white photos of 166 Canadian writers, all of whom say something about reading." Rebecca Wigod, Vancouver Sun, September 29, 2006.
"Reading Writers Reading: Canadian Authors' Reflections, features such acclaimed authors as Margaret Atwood, Mavis Gallant, Greg Hollingshead, David Bergen and Andrew Pyper. Each writer muses about a personal aspect of reading.... Schaub continues to teach Canadian literature in Israel. Despite the difference in size between the two countries, they have a lot of similarities, she said. Most of the population is along the U.S. border in Canada and along the water in Israel. Canada has English, French and native people, where Israel has Jewish, Palestinian and Bedouin people. And both countries have a lot of immigrants, leading to an increased consciousness of identity and belonging. 'There are masses of writers I wish I could have included,' she said. 'I just hope there'll be a second book.'" Jeffrey Simpson, The Chronicle Herald, Oct. 23/06
"From Mavis Gallant to Guy Vanderhaeghe, from Nicole Brossard to George Elliot Clarke, from Rgine Robin to Stphane Despatie, Margaret Atwood to Tomson Highway, each writer, French or English, relates how reading helped shape their lives. These reflections and images represent just a sampling of the authors included in Schaub's book and who, for the most part are unanimous in one thing: Before writing comes reading." The Ottawa Citizen, October 22, 2006.
"La plupart des auteurs ont voqu leur premire experience de lecture, ou celle qui les a le plus maqus et les a amens vers la literature....L'insection de la photographie des auteurs ct de leur rflexion apporte aussi un clirage particulier l'ensemble." Jennyfer Collin, La Libert Loisirs, October 2006.
