I’ll be reading from Wow Wow and Haw Haw this Sunday at Word On The Street Halifax. Apparently on a tugboat. 2pm! Bring your little ones. If the tugboat is sold out, come see me at the Breakwater Books booth at 1pm instead where I’ll be signing copies of the book.

Event: Wild Writers Festival

October 11, 2013

I’ll be appearing at the Wild Writers Festival in Waterloo, Ontario in November. The entire program is here. It looks like it’s more of a festival of discussions than readings, which means things should be pretty interesting and lively, especially given the lineup. Come out and join us!

Saturday, November 9, 3:45pm to 5pm

Reading: Fisher’s Loft, Port Rexton

August 28, 2013

I’ll be reading this weekend up in Port Rexton, a lovely small town in scenic Trinity, at the incredibly posh B&B/Inn The Fisher’s Loft (I think it’s been profiled in big places like National Geographic, etc., as one of the best places to stay in the world) as part of their Just Before Dinner reading series. I’ll read to guests and they people stay for dinner from the 5-star chef. Including me. Hot damn. If you’re looking for an end of summer activity to treat yourself, this should be great. I’m reading aphorisms, old and new.
