Good news - the organizers of the NorthWords Writers Festival have invited me to participate as a guest author this year. The festival will be held in Yellowknife, June 12 to 14. Visiting writers include Lesley Choyce, Bernice Morgan, Michael Crummey, Jennifer Storm, Richard Van Camp, and my good friend (former Yellowknifer) Anita Daher. I will be joining a number of other local authors: Annelies Pool, Jamie Bastedo, Mindy Willett, Patrick Scott, Pat Braden, Tessa Macintosh, Tyler Heal, Walt Humphries and Fran Hurcomb.
This is the third year for NorthWords. I was on the organizing committee for the previous two festivals - I'm glad to be involved again, albeit in a different way.
Details are still being worked out - more later!
