I’m excited to be giving two readings of my new books at public libraries in my home region of the West Kootenay. Both The Road to Appledore or How I Went Back to the Land Without Ever Having Lived There in the First Place from Harbour Publishing, and How Can You Live Here? from Frontenac House describe life in this area, at least as I’ve experienced it.

On Wednesday, May 29 at 7 pm, I’ll be reading at the Nelson Public Library, 602 Stanley St. This will be the hometown launch, speaking to people very familiar with the landscapes, and probably with some of the incidents, described in both new volumes. So potentially a tough audience! The reading is free, by donation.

On Thursday, May 30 at 7 pm, I’ll be reading at the Nakusp Public Library, 92 – 6th Ave. NW. This reading is also free and, as with the Nelson reading, all are welcome.
