First up is an author panel hosted by Marty Chan on Tuesday, August 2nd at the Strathcona Branch of Edmonton Public Library at 7pm. Please see EPL's website for more information.
The library is also hosting book clubs for all of the Alberta Readers Choice finalists. I've been invited to facilitate the pop-up book club on Thursday, August 25th, at Steeps Tea Lounge. To learn more, visit EPL's site.
Lastly, I'm going to end with a bit of a brag. Wayne Arthurson, EPL's writer in residence for 2016, has included Rumi and the Red Handbag on a list titled, "Top Picks with Edmonton Settings." Having your book called 'a small and wonderful work of art' is a really lovely thing. Also, the book continues to have oodles of holds on it! Cool, yes? One doesn't become a millionaire with such a book as mine, but these are the moments that make sense of the writing life for me, and I'm grateful for them.
