NEWS & EVENTS

It's kind of weird to talk about "Events" now, isn't it? Remember when we used to do those? Hoping to have some more live events to promote later in 2021.

The annual festival at Ochre Pit Cove, which I was supposed to read at in June 2020, moved online for the COVID-19 year. You can see all the beautifully-produced videos, including mine, at their website.

I did a reading and a Q&A on Facebook Live on May 13, and you can view the archived video here.

I still enjoy visiting book clubs, and would love to visit yours by Skype or Zoom if you're carrying on meetings virtually during lockdown. If your book club is planning to read any of my books, and you'd like me to visit, click the "Contact" button above and drop me a line. You can also go the "Discuss" page for some resources.

Past Events

It was such an honour when Most Anything You Please won the 2019 NL Reads competition, sponsored by NL Public Libraries and CBC Newfoundland and Labrador, and the accompanying Margaret Duley Award. Here are all the nominees with our reader/defenders:

In September 2016 I visited the Holyrood Library for a book club meeting and discussion with this lovely group! I love book clubs and I'd be glad to come to yours.

On April 21, 2015, I participated in an event at Government House in  St. John's, celebrating the 90th anniversary of Newfoundland women winning the right to vote and run for public office. Here's my video report on that event:

I was honoured to be part of the Michael J. McCarthy Memorial Readings at the Mount Pearl Public Library with talented storytellers Christine Hennebury and Dale Jarvis in early November 2014
