Just returned from France, Italy, and Greece, for the launch of MaddAddam; then to the UK for Stone Mattress. Returned via Moncton (Discourse and Dynamics) and Storyfest in Hudson, Que.
Looking forward to New York, Arizona, Penn State, and more in November and December (see Events). In Toronto, Art of Time, the Aster Awards, and the big new book fair and festival, Inspire. Also my birthday, celebrated in Sudbury and at the Writers’ Trust event in Toronto.

Working on a date for a party/launch of the gorgeous new edition of The Journals of Susanna Moodie, illustrated by Charles Pachter (Cormorant Books). Pub date Nov. 18, by birthday. When I know the date I’ll post it…
Also upcoming: putting the garden to bed for the winter. Lots of work. If I dare to plant tulips, I’ll cover with wire screen until freeze-up, to frustrate the squirrels.
