Summer Workstation – Presentation Prep

2B9A6346-3Preparing the presentations for my BC Book Tour is pure pleasure in this beautiful late summer weather when I can move my workstation to the garden.

BC Book Tour: Sept 14-Oct 19

ECBC 3 Book Tour FBReally looking forward to getting back to my old stomping grounds in BC on this upcoming tour. I’ll be speaking at libraries and museums in locations covered in Book Three ~ Emily Carr’s BC: South Coast to the Interior. Kicking off in Victoria at Emily Carr House, I’ll head inland for several stops in the Okanagan, Shuswap, and as far east as Golden; then backtracking to Sechelt, Squamish and Pemberton before wrapping up at a Whistler Writers Festival event being hosted by the Audain Art Museum. How fantastic is that!

Here’s the schedule so far.
