Sudbury Reading Town!

I'm excited to be heading to Sudbury for the bilingual Reading Town literary festival. And honoured that the fest has chosen "Mr. Zinger's Hat" as the book to be read by the entire city--at the same time! I'll be seeing a student play based on the book, visiting schools, and...marching in a parade! Who says being an author means sitting alone at a desk?
