2011 Fall Author Tour

It’s that time of year again–the leaves are turning colour, the combines have finished chugging through the fields, and Saskatchewan’s Education Week has arrived. Once again, Education Week overlaps with Saskatchewan Library Week. Things are much less rushed when the weeks run back-t0-back instead of together!

This year my presentations will focus around the place I love best–home–Saskatchewan past and present. No matter where my travel writing career takes me, I still find the best place is here. I’ll be reading from:

  • L is for Land of Living Skies: A Saskatchewan Alphabet – hardcover nonfiction picture book that takes you around Saskatchewan
  • Pictures – Juvenile realistic contemporary fiction novel set in Waskesiu, SK – features a sasquatch encounter
  • Longhorns and Outlaws – Juvenile historical fiction about cattle drive/outlaws set in southwest SK in 1901
  • Adeline’s Dream – Juvenile historical fiction about immigration/living in a sod home, set in Qu’Appelle, SK, 1910
