International Day of Pink

Gabby and Roy 2015 International Day of Pink

This CBC News article explains the powerful message sent by students wearing pink for International Pink Day today. Originally a symbol of support for a classmate who was bullied for wearing pink–now it’s an annual Canadian event against bullying and homophobia.

Authors for Indies Day – May 2, 2015

Book City Yonge and St ClairI’ll be at Book City at Yonge and St. Clair on May 2 to help raise awareness (and have some fun!) on Authors for Indies Day.

It’s a way for authors to support independent bookstores–and thank them for all that they do for us throughout the year. We will be talking about books, recommending books and doing some readings and signings.

I’ll be joining these fabulous authors aBook City logot that location:
