Dear fun-seeking reader,
I want to let you know about some events I have coming up.
This Friday I’ll be in Anchorage at Cyrano’s Theatre Company with Leigh Newman. She recently published her memoir Still Points North about growing up in Alaska, seeing the world, and then coming home again.
The event is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, April 26. Expect a reading from each of us as well as “snacks, fizzy beverages and merriment!” It should be lots of fun.
Then next week I head south to Bend, Oregon for Deschutes Public Library’s “A Novel Idea…Read Together.” It has been an delightful honor to have The Snow Child chosen for their annual program.
Everyone in the publishing world keeps telling me this is one of the best community reads programs in the country. It kicked off with three weeks of free cultural programs, book discussions, films, food tastings, lectures and art openings.
The program culminates with two presentations in Bend. On Friday May 3, I’ll be reading at the Tower Theatre, but I understand these tickets are sold out. However, I’ll also be at a non-ticketed event on May 4th at 11:00 a.m. at Ridgeview High School in Redmond.
So whether you’re in Anchorage, Alaska, or Bend, Oregon, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.
