Escape the April Ice Storm with a good book!!
We have 5 great books coming to Junction Reads on April 29! We are hosting a great mix of Young Adult fiction and Adult fiction with Glynis Guevara, Ursula Pflug, Andrew Daley, Sally Cooper and Ele Pawelski.
Join us at Famous Last Words for a perfect evening of readings and discussion. We have a new start time (5:15pm), which gives staff time to open up and get set up.
I’ll be on several panels at Limestone Genre Expo in Kingston.
On Saturday May 26 I’ll be on Young Adult Fiction: Not Just For Teens. It’s between 3-4 p.m. in Bellevue Room North. My co-panelists are A.A. Jankiewicz, Alyssa Cooper, Ann Shortell and Brandon Crilly, with Kate Heartfield moderating.
Several of my books are YA/Adult crossover, including the YA fantasy novel, The Alphabet Stones, and the illustrated flash novel Motion Sickness. Mountain, a near future cli-apocalyptic tale, was published by Inanna’s new Young Feminists imprint. I’m looking forward to speaking with my co-panelists about the special draw of genre YA to young people and adults alike.
On Sunday May 27 between 10-11, again in Bellevue Room North, I’ll be on Where Do Story Idea Come From, a perrenial favourite. My co-panelists are Tobin Elliot, Lisa de Nikolits, Madona Skaf, and Bob Mackenzie. Kris Jacen moderates.
My last panel is on Sunday between 3-4 pm: Dystopian Fiction: How To Write When The World Is Falling Apart. With Una Verdandi, Robin Timmerman, Brad Baker, Tapanga Koe and Hayden Trenholm. Nina Muntenu moderates.
I’m looking forward and hope to see some of you in Kingston.
