Upcoming Author Appearance

Saturday, October 13, 2012

7:30 p.m.

All Saints Church

2850 Bloor St. West, Toronto (east of Royal York)

I have another appearance coming up – this one completely out of the blue. I was at a house party a few weeks ago, where I met the lovely and talented Tonia Szkurhan, a friend of the hosts. Our shared affinity for the arts got us to talking, and eventually she sang a song for those gathered around. Wow! What a voice. She told me about this upcoming concert and invited me to do a reading from my book as part of the show.

Just like that.

I just love it when artists support each other – everybody wins.

Here are the details…

Book Signing at Pandemonium Books & Discs

Just a quick note to let you know about my upcoming reading and book signing. The event is being held at my local used bookstore on September 8. So excited and looking forward to seeing some familiar faces!

 

I’m pleased with the poster, which I D-I-mYself. I just recently discovered Paint.net, downloaded it for free and used it to create this poster from my book cover. The internet simply rocks. Not sure what I would do without it – hmm…probably get a lot more writing done, actually.

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.)
