The Naomi K. Lewis presentation and workshop at Memorial Park Library last week were a lot of fun and very interesting. Thanks to Naomi for doing a great job, and to the folks who braved the weather to come out to them.
I was very pleased to find out, earlier this week, that a short story of mine has been selected for inclusion in Freshwater Pearls: The Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society 30th Anniversary Anthology, being published this September by Calgary’s own Recliner Books. It looks like I’m going to be in excellent company! And I’m sure the launch party will be epic. Very exciting.
In other news, looking forward to the launch of my friend and colleague Susan Calder’s first novel, Deadly Fall, a mystery being published by Touchwood Editions. The launch is 7 PM on March 24th at Owl’s Nest Books in Brittania Shopping Plaza.
A couple of weeks later, I’m reading at a salon on the afternoon of April 10th, graciously being hosted by Barb Howard. More details as they become available.
And finally, a reminder of our annual readapalooza, Writing in the Works 4, which is coming up at 1:30 PM, Saturday, May 14th at dear old Memorial Park Library. This year’s lineup is: Naomi Lewis, Susan Calder, Inge Trueman, Elaine Morin and yours truly, and emceed by our own Rona Altrows. Join us for an afternoon of readings, refreshments and book sales by Shelf Life Books.
Over and out for now.
