Reading at Internationalist Books – Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Internationalist Books, located at 405 W Franklin St in Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Hey there! This Sunday, June 17 at 5pm, I will be appearing at the Internationalist Books and Community Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. (Look at that, will you? I restrained my Canadian urge to spell “Center” with an “re”.) I  will be reading from In the Fool’s Footsteps and signing books. If you’re in the neighbourhood, come on by!

I haven’t been there yet, but their website boasts that they’ve been selling “riot literature” since 1981. It’s also a hub for activism, gender issues and community involvement. While I wouldn’t exactly categorize In the Fool’s Footsteps as “riot” literature, it does raise gender questions (you’ll see what I mean when you read it) and presents characters who do not subscribe to the status quo (to put it mildly).

(Once the reading is finished, I am expecting my family to place me under house arrest, since we are actually here on vacation. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity.)

Book Launch Highlights

Last Friday, I launched my book, In the Fool’s Footsteps, and I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun. I invited friends and family to my local bar and restaurant, where much of the book was written. (There was something creatively magical about three coffees and two pints that propelled the story forward.) Champagne, food, a reading and book signing – perfection.

In the Fool’s Footsteps is available on Amazon ($12.99 for the paperback; $9.99 for the ebook).
