Great weekend in the mountain town of Fernie, BC, where I'd never been in spite of my upbringing not so far off. The rain rained hard, but at least 60 people still turned out at the beautiful Heritage Library for the Booked! reading series and an evening of live music, wine, and book talk (this library has its own bar. Believe it). Host Angie Abdou and I have a lot in common--first books were both short-story collections with Thistledown Press, for one--but I spilled more drinks than she did. Thanks to my hosts and sponsors, including the Park Place Lodge with its great glass elevator! It was good to talk about All True with people who know trails and trapping much better than I do.
Fellow author Angie Abdou and me at the other bar before the reading.
I'm the author of All True Not a Lie In It (Knopf Canada 2015, Ecco USA 2016) and The Old Familiar (Thistledown 2008).
