Kidsbooks event


Not sure if anyone comes here anymore?  I’ve been away for quite sometime.  Sorry.

For those of you who are in the Vancouver area, I’ll be reading at Kidsbooks (the one on Broadway) this Thursday, March 14th at 7PM. I’ll read a titch from my new book, A Taste Of Heaven, and then we’ll settle in for a cozy chat. 

It’s interesting, these readings.  I never know what to expect.  Sometimes it’s a handful of people, sometimes it’s hundreds. 

Once, there was a raging blizzard outside, people were warned to stay home, but I was worried, what if someone showed up anyway, braved the snow, and I wasn’t there.  So, I cajoled my husband into accompanying me.  “Madness,” he said.  “No one is going to show.”

One person did.  Had come quite a distance, a 45 minute white knuckle drive.  I was quite moved by her determination.  I mean it was one thing for me to show up with my husband in tow, we had an all-wheel-drive vehicle, winter tires and a snow shovel in the back.  And I would have read, just for her, if she had wanted me to, but she was more interested in a chat.  So chat we did, then we put on our coats, our hats and gloves and trudged out into the snowy night, squinting through eyelashes in an attempt to see better, keep the snow at bay.

And then, there are places like Village Books in Bellingham.  Who would think in Bellingham that the entire downstairs of the store (and it was big) would be stuffed to the gills, all the rows and rows of chairs filled and people standing too.  Every time I’ve been, doesn’t matter the book, adult, YA, always the town turns out.  So much fun, reading at Village Book.

So, I don’t know what’s in store for me at Kidsbooks. But I do know, that whether it’s a big group or a small one, we always have fun.
