cloudy, rainy, cool temps 12
It was supposed to be sunny and warm, so I put on a light top, and light sweater. And then it ended up being...not sunny and hot. But fortunately the Lord Elgin hotel is within walking distance of the Ottawa library. So no problem. Train trip here yesterday was easy...had huge fun with Michel at the C'est La Vie CBC Radio interview. The topic was how books are translated into French. Fascinating. Bernard St-Laurent, the host, was terrific.
Arrived in Ottawa about 7pm. But not before realizing I'd forgotten my agenda in Sutton!! This was like leaving my right leg there. Very crippling! Everything is in there. Thank God Michael saved the day. As soon as he got back to Sutton he FedExed it to the publisher in Toronto. And I have a tour schedule with me, sent by the publisher, so at least I'm not bumbling all over Ottawa, knocking on doors saying, 'I'm Louise. Am I suppose to speak to you?'
Had an event this morning at the library for the literacy novella, The Hangman. Spoke to a bunch of literacy advocates about the book.
Have another event tonight for The Brutal Telling. But I think I'll also read from Bury Your Dead as well.
So far so good. Tomorrow's an easy day...just travel to Kingston.
Oh, and have added a few new events...mostly book signings - including one in North Conway, Vermont, at White Birch books, on November 2nd.
Speak to you tomorrow...hope you're enjoying your day!
