This Sunday, April 25 at 3:00 p.m. EDT I’ll be officially launching The Only Way Is the Steady Way in a free online event co-presented by Invisible Publishing and the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival. I’ll do some readings from the book and be in conversation with Vancouver-based arts champion, music geek, and baseball fan Sean Cranbury. You can register here.
Updated Mattawa River Writers Festival Schedule
The Mattawa River Writers Festival is now an online affair. I’ll be speaking, reading, and holding a Q and A via Zoom beginning at 2:30 PM Eastern on April 22nd. Register here. All MWRF events are now free, but donations are accepted and appreciated, as this is the Canadian Ecology Centre’s big annual fundraiser. Hope you’ll join me and witness my fumbling attempts to master the technology. It’s a great lineup; I’d suggest making a day of it, if you’re free.
UPDATE: the event was recorded, and it’s now up on YouTube. Enjoy?
