A Morning With Madeleine Thien

I am very excited and a bit stunned to say that I have been invited to host A Morning with Madeleine Thien, aWordFest event taking place at 8:30 AM, Wed. October 12 at Sidewalk Citizen, located in the Simmons Building at 618 Confluence Way SE. I’ll be talking to the Montreal author about her new novel Do Not Say We Have Nothing, which has longlisted for both the Giller Prize and the Man Booker Prize.

Many thanks to Shelley Youngblut and WordFest! I’m looking forward to this event.


Beer and Literary Pairings



Beer and books. A match made in heaven? Perhaps. Come and find out at the WGA’s first Beer and Literary Pairings event Tuesday, Sept. 27th, 7:30 PM, at Shelf Life Books (1302-4 St. SW). I’ll be reading along with Dymphny Dronyk, Todd Babiak and two TBA writers (Alice Munro? Margaret Atwood?). We’ll be talking and reading about beer, and sampling some tasty brews by some fine local brewers. Sounds like a whole lot of fun to me!
