Had a lovely visit there the other day. This is a shot of the amazing bulletin board teacher-librarian Kelly Boyd had waiting for me, along with a young fan [and aspiring writer] named Dylan.
Dylan was also responsible for giving me a Very Cool thank you card in the shape of a lighthouse, fashioned after the cover of my book SECRET OF LIGHT. Thanks to Dylan and his pals and all the other great kids and teachers at Summerside Intermediate. You made a very busy day a whole lot of fun!
Tonight I’m after me last gig on the Island, over at ta bookstore. [You know, it is near impossible to write in Island dialect. My mother was born in Summerside and I’ve known Island accents all my life, but I still struggle like mad with trying to document. So…for all our sake’s, I’ll stop trying now…]
Tonight’s event, my last on the Island for this visit, is at 7pm at Charlottetown Indigo. There’s still snow on the ground and it is the eve of the first long weekend of the year, but I’d still like to extend a warm invitation to any and all who might like to come out for a chat and a signed book from 7 -8pm or so. I had a very elegant set of monochromatic tights and high heels for tonight, but my neon pink boots have been such a hit here, I guess they’ll put in an appearance, just for fun.
Had a lovely chat with Karen Mair of CBC Charlottetown today, and if she puts up a link to the conversation, I’ll link to here on the blog. Now, it’s just about time to get ready, so off I go — hope to see some of you there tonight!
