ACADIAN STAR Ontario launch! (and cupcake carnage)

I’m coming off the high of another wonderful ACADIAN STAR event (or maybe those are the extra sprinkles on my cupcake talking).

The Ontario launch was held this morning at the Markham Village Library. What a GORGEOUS library!

The children’s librarian, Jennifer, was wonderful and had prepared the space for our arrival. And by the way, Markham residents are some of the most prolific library users in Canada. Yay, Markhamites!! 


About 90 people were in attendance, lots of familiar faces and some new friendships, too! I talked about being an author, answered lots of amazing questions (kids ask SUCH good questions) read a chapter of ACADIAN STAR and signed lots and lots of books afterward.

And of course, what’s a party without cupcakes…

Oops! I was a bit too late for the ‘before’ picture.

Thanks for coming, everyone! And thanks to the Markham Village Library for helping to make this event such a huge success!

It’s events like these that remind me what a wonderful job our librarians are doing promoting books and getting people excited about reading. So if you haven’t already, please get a library card and visit your local library!


Come to my launch! Invite your friends!
