Eastward, slow but steady

Yes, it’s true, This hot place is moving in an easterly direction.  Manitoba’s been great to me, I have to say!  First the fantastic turnout for my reading in April.  And then the great sales at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg even after I’d returned home.

Then, a great reading with Pearl Pirie in Ottawa earlier this month.  And now, a great review from a Manitoban writer on the website of the Ottawa-based literary magazine, ARC!  Honestly, I’d given up on seeing any more reviews so this comes as a wonderful surprise.  Thanks, ARC!

Not easterly movement but, another wonderful surprise arrived this week.  I received an invitation to be the guest speaker at the Moose Jaw SK, National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women which takes place on December 6 in memory of the 14 women murdered at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989.  I know I have some relevant poems to share at that event.  Information on that is here.

For now, however, it’s rest and relaxation so that I have energy for the Saskatchewan Book Awards Gala on November 27!
