I’m packing as I type (well, taking a break from packing as I type) but tomorrow morning, bright and early, I’ll be winging my way to New Brunswick to take part in the Hackmatack Children’s Choice Book Award tour.
ACADIAN STAR was nominated for the 2009/2010 Hackmatack Program and I’ll be joining several other nominated authors, visiting schools throughout the Atlantic Provinces.
I am SO looking forward to meeting all the kids who took part in the program and excited to talk to them about one of my favourite things: BOOKS!
Here’s my schedule for the tour, so if I’m coming to your school, don’t be shy–say HI! The public library readings are open to the public so please drop in!
