Today is the official opening of the International Festival of Authors in Toronto. I'll be doing two readings for the TD Canadian Children's Literature Awards (Thing-Thing is a finalist). Both are on Saturday, Oct. 24. For the first I'm reading with fellow nominee Nicola Campbell at 11.am in the Studio Theatre. The second is a panel discussion with all the nominees, moderated by Ken Setterington. That one's at 4p.m., also in the Studio Theatre.
I'm looking forward to hearing some authors myself.

Next Tuesday I'll be heading to Calgary for the Wordfest, the city's annual literary hootenany. I'll be doing no less than five readings, one at the festival itself an the others at local schools. It's a very well-run and friendly fest so my expectations for a fine time are high. There's also a fundraising dinner where we authors get to pretend we're celebrities. I'm going to bring my best pair of jeans.
