Workshopping The Girl Who Writes at a Wonderful Place

We are happy to be conducting workshops on The Boy Who Paints and The Girl Who Writes over the next month with students from Hillcrest School in Surrey.

The day was warm.  Spring was in the air, and the warmth of the sun outside went right through to our bones after the winter.  And if that wasn’t enough, look what we found when we rolled into the parking lot with our canvases, our paints, and our load of kids books.  Our place was reserved by librarian Bonnie Chapman with this amazing sign.

It is a wonderful place, filled with the buzz of inspired minds.


Back to the Books! Reading The Girl Who Writes at Black Bond

It’s back to school and back to the books — kinda — here in BC.  To launch us into the groove of fall reading, Richard Cole and K. Jane Watt will be reading from our new book and talking about how it came together at Black Bond Books in Ladner

We’d love you to join us at Black Bond Books

5251 Ladner Trunk Rd, Delta on Sunday September 7 at 2:00.

We will also dip into our audience favourite of 2013 The Boy Who Paints.

We look forward to seeing you there — kicking off our fall season of public appearances and doing what we love — talking to readers about books and the wonder of words.
