Trillium Book Awards Author Reading 2015

Goodbye For Now

Share |

I've had a great time being W.I.R on Open Book Toronto -- thank you to everyone for reading my musings and watching my new-wave video clips. I'm not disappearing entirely, though.

Over the next couple of months, I'll be posting some book reviews (appreciations) and if I can, some photos and writings from my upcoming trip through China.

In September, I start my reading circuit in support of Where We Have to Go. If you're in the area, come by. I'd love to meet you. Here a few selected dates:

On September 20, - Words Alive Literary Festival in Sharon, Ontario.

September 22: Winnipeg International Writers Festival, Winnipeg

September 27: Word on the Street, Toronto

October 5: Reading with Lori Lansens, Ottawa

October 22: The International Festival of Authors, Toronto

November 1-3: IFOA Ontario on the Road (Orillia, Uxbridge, Don Mills and others)

Thank you to Open Book for hosting me. It's been nice having a little blog home of my own. Now I hand it over to the very talented Marianne Paul.

Until soon,
