On Sunday, September 16, I’ll be one of the authors reading at one of Canada’s finest literary festivals, the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival, located just outside of Guelph. From the Eden Mills site:
Over 50 authors will be reading in beautiful sites around the village. Bring a blanket or folding chair, and a sun hat or rain gear. The festival takes place rain or shine! Great author line-up: Michael Ondaatje, Ami McKay (The Birth House), Lilian Nattel (Web of Angels), Eva Stachniak (The Winter Palace), Carmen Aguirre (Something Fierce, 2012 Canada Reads), Trevor Cole (Practical Jean, 2011 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour), Tanis Rideout (Above all Things, just released & getting great reviews!), Donna Morrissey, Nora Young, Michele Landsberg, poets Roo Borson, Don McKay, Tim Lilburn, George Elliot Clarke and more! Children’s Authors site and two reading sets for teens. Book signing, food vendors, licensed patio. Visit edenmillswritersfestival.ca for the complete author list.
Tickets: $15 adults, $10 students, children under 14 free. Available at the gate, The Bookshelf or online at Ticketpro.com.
I’ll be one of the invited young adult authors, which includes such far-better creators as Alan Stratton (The Grave Robber’s Apprentice), Mariko Tamaki (Skim, (You )Set Me on Fire), Teresa Toten (The Taming) and Julie Wilson (Seen Reading). The following day (Monday, September 17), I’ll be leading high school writing workshops all day at Camp Edgewood. Contact Adrian Hoad-Reddick at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or a student you know would be interested in taking part.
