Some Crisp Fall Readings, Indoors, Outdoors, and Stateside…


The edges of the trees have the faintest stain of red.

The farmers’ markets are vivid with the reds, purples and yellows of harvest-time.


I’ve stopped wearing sandals.

And, I’m luring you indoors, or outdoors, to some readings I’m doing…

This Friday September 21, 8p.m. I’ll be reading from my novel, The Children of Mary at the lovely IV Lounge ( 326 Dundas West, across from the AGO) as part of the IV Reading Series along with Kate Sutherland (All in Together Girls, short fiction) and Andrew Daley (Tell Your Sister, novel).

I’ve read there before – they do a nice martini (just so you know…)
And it’s FREE


and then on

Sunday September 30, 12:30pm., I’ll be reading as part of Word on the Street, an enormous bookfair on the grounds of Queen’s Park at the
“Proud Voices Tent”, smack in the middle of the park, just north of Wellesley, 1/2 way between Queen’s Park Crescent West and Queen’s park Crescent East (just east of U of T).
I’ll be reading from Comfort Food for Breakups: The Memoir of a Hungry Girl (Arsenal Pulp).
