I Will Be Appearing at THIN AIR, the Winnipeg International Writers Festival

I think the title of this post should be self-explanatory. This is the good news I was hinting at some weeks back (which was probably in my last blog post–bad blogger! Bad, lazy blogger!). I feel confident in announcing it now, as my name is up on the website .

Come see me read from Thunder Road Sunday, September 23rd on the Mainstage: Voices from Oodena. From the program:

Oodena, the natural amphitheatre at The Forks, has been a gathering place for centuries. THIN AIR celebrates that history with a collage of commissioned work from writers who have made a mark on the local scene. Gather on the stairs for a magical evening of words in many flavours. Bring a jacket—the air is cool as the sun sets.

Admission is free. Books for sale on-site. Inclement weather: Centre Court, The Forks Market

Oodena is one of my favourite locales in Winnipeg. It just screams story (it’s also where I had my first official author photo taken, thank you Rachel!) and the words “magical evening” tell me I’d better bring my “A” game. Fortunately, I have a whole novel of magical things to choose from to read on the 23rd, one of the benefits of writing fantasy.

I’m very excited about this appearance. I attended THIN AIR as a bookseller and reader for several years before I started attending as a writer, so being invited to appear there after the release of my first novel is a real treat. Thank you to the THIN AIR staff: Charlene, Perry, Tavia, Karen, Kate, Bruce, and Kendra for inviting me.

Here’s my write-up:
