I’ll be doing a reading of Tagged Out during PRIDE Toronto, at the
Yorkville Library on Sat., July 2 at 10:30 a.m.
There will be other authors there as well, including Catherine Hernandez.
It’s a free event, and great for the whole family. Hope you can join us!
Customized, fun and inspiring presentations for students from grade 1 to high school, from writers’ workshops to media lit and “becoming a writer.” Skype visits also available.
And if you’re in Ontario, TWUC’s Ontario Writers in the Schools Program can help you save money on the fee and they’ll even cover travel expenses.
Email me today to book, or for more information: email@example.com.
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 at that location:
Angela Misri, Elyse Friedman, Stephen Smith, Michael Harris, Helaine Becker, Kathy Kacer, Loren Edizel, Molly Peacock, Kevin Sylvester, Charmian Christie, Anna Porter, Robert Charles Wilson, Sharry Wilson, Charmian Christie, Terry Fallis. I’ll be there most of the day, so please drop by!
Oh, and here’s the Authors for Indies website so you can plan your day.
Gabby’s second quirky adventure is now on store shelves.
We haven’t officially launched the book yet, and we’ll let you know when that party will be. (Hint: you’re invited.)
In the meantime, I signed some copies of Gabby and Gabby: Drama Queen at the wonderful Playful Minds toy store on St. Clair Ave. to help them celebrate their 10th anniversary.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the launch party for Gabby on Jan. 27.
It was held at the ITA Cafe on Bloor St., a perfect venue because the cafe funds free literacy activities for kids.
Jan Dolby and I did a reading (with the help of my son, who posted the fabric letters). The kids who attended made plasticine and crayon Gabbies, which were fantastic. We’ll post pictures in our Kids’ Art Gallery soon.
The piece de resistance was a cake made by my editor, Christie Harkin, with gorgeous
Gabby cake toppers by dimensional media artist Suzanne del Rizzo. And the cake was delicious, too!
Thanks to everyone who attended the launch!
PS: Here’s a terrific article about the launch and ITA, written by book reviewer Kerry Clare.
