Literature Required Reading
Ever wonder what book is feeding your favourite musician’s head? Wilfrid Laurier University student Chris DePaul created foundinthemargins.com with a mission to make books cool again. "I got the idea during a time when I was listening to a lot of music that was very lyrically dense,” DePaul says. "I often read books my friends would recommend, and I thought it would be interesting to read the books that have inspired these great songwriters.”

Since launching the site in April 2006, DePaul has received enthusiastic responses from the likes of the Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture, Tokyo Police Club, Tegan & Sara, and many more. And so far, works by Dostoevsky, Steinbeck, and Kerouac are the page-turners most commonly found on the floor of the tour van.
