Fall season begins

Back from a couple of weeks on Vancouver Island, which always refreshes me. It takes me a while to drop out of Calgary mode and get into Island mode, but by the time we come back I always feel different. And as they say, different is good.

So as usual, the fall literary season is shaping up to be a busy one:
  • I'm going to the launch of Brian Brennan's new book, Leaving Dublin: Writing My Way From Ireland to Canada, at 7 PM this Tuesday, Sept. 6, at Christ Church Calgary, 3602 8 St. SW
  • On Saturday, Sept. 10 I'm going to my friend and colleague Naomi K. Lewis' launch of her term as writer-in residence at Calgary Public Library. That's at 2 PM at Memorial Park Library, 1221 - 2 St. SW
  • Then on Wed. Sept. 14 at 7 PM there's my talk on The Writing Life, hosted by the Writers Guild of Alberta, at Shelf Life Books, 1302 - 4 St. SW.
  • The Alexandra Writers Centre Society is hosting the launch of the Freshwater Pearls Anthology on Wed. Sept. 21 at 7 PM at the Alexandra Centre, 922 - 9 Ave. SE
  • And on Sat. Sept. 24th Karen Willsey Bass launches her new YA novel Drummer Girl at Monkeyshines Books, 113, 2215 - 33rd Ave SW
And that's just the stuff I'm definitely attending. Lots of other readings and launches going on. Looks like a good fall!

Right you are, Brian. Thanks for catching that!
