I’m honoured to be part of the lineup at the North Shore Writers’ Fest again this year. From 2:30-3:30 Saturday, April 12, I will be on the panel Enlivening the Past with historical fiction writers Sandra Gulland, Daniel Kalla, and Roberta Rich. CBC’s Jen Sookfong Lee will be the moderator. The North Shore Writers’ Fest takes place at the North Vancouver City Library, 120 West 14th Street (Lonsdale & 14th). From 5-6:30 pm, readers and authors will mingle at a reception in the atrium, which will feature wine, appetizers, music, and door prizes. Attendance is free to all festival events, people are friendly, and there’s always a lot of fun going on. As a nice follow-up, I will be the guest speaker at the North Shore Writers’ Association meeting on April 14, which will be held at the Capilano branch of the North Vancouver District Library, 3045 Highland Boulevard. On April 26, the 4th Annual North Shore Art Crawl will be happening all over North and West Vancouver. 32 Books & Gallery at 3185 Edgemont Boulevard in Edgemont Village will be participating and Roberta Rich and I will be signing copies of our new novels in the store from 2 to 4 pm. We hope to have some wonderful conversations with the people dropping by.
