Tumblehome Events and Readings

Here are the events that have been firmed up so far. Check back often! More events will be added in the weeks and months to come. And if you’d like to book a reading or book signing or book club visit in your community—in a bookstore, library, community centre or other venue—please contact me. Have books again! Will travel…

I will be on the TUMBLEHOME  MARITIME TOUR the first three weeks of October, visiting Sackville and St. Stephen NB and Halifax, Lunenburg, and LaHave NS. My heart goes out to everyone in the coastal communities whose homes and livelihoods were devastated by Hurricane Fiona. All proceeds of the books I sell (as opposed to those sold by partnering bookstores) during this tour will be donated to help with the recovery. Many thanks to the bookstores, libraries and the Cranewood bakery and cafe who have partnered with me in such a welcoming way to make this tour possible.



All events are in-person and “mask friendly.” If you would like more details or a PDF of the invitation/poster for any of these events, please email me.
