Book Launch in Halifax

100_4875My friend Meghan Marentette and I had a joint launch at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia of her first children’s novel, The Stowaways (Pajama Press) and of my fifth novel, The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden (Fitzhenry & Whiteside).100_4873Halifax-20131117-00155

A terrific event – a sandwich board outside the door, children sitting on a rug near the podium, delicious nibblies prepared by us (yes, I’m boasting!). Lisa Doucet was there from Woozles,

selling books. My great-grandson Logan was in the front row (his first book launch) with his mother Jessica, my granddaughter, to whom my book is dedicated.

Carmen Klassen of CBC Radio did a wonderful job of introducing Meghan and me, thank you, Carmen.

And many friends came to help us celebrate as our two new books make their way into the world. Thanks to everyone who made this event so successful.
