UBCO's One Book Kelowna is underway. We opened last night at the Okanagan Regional Library on Ellis, with the inimitable Michael V. Smith hosting, and Neela, a ten-year-old fiddler, providing period atmosphere. I talked a bit about how I wrote All True and read a short (non-vegetarian) section, and the audience didn't let me off with easy questions. More events are coming up this month--next is October 12th at the UBCO campus for informal book-club discussion with readers. Everyone is welcome. There will be snacks. And I may wear my fancy shoes again, because they're invisible in this photo . . ..
I'm the author of All True Not a Lie In It (Knopf Canada 2015, Ecco USA 2016) and The Old Familiar (Thistledown 2008).
