I tweeted this earlier:

"Author Encounter, Crossings Library, Tuesday night; Jane Harris-Zsovan,
Blaine Greenwood, Richard Stevenson, and Ken Sears. 

It’s all part of the only Word on the Street to take place in Alberta, 25 September.

Here is Lethbridge’s Word on the Street Blog. (I’m also participating in that event.)

Arts Days, including Art Walk and Arts Fest, are the following week. I’m also doing a 
reading there, but haven’t got all the details, yet.

Come one; come all to the only city in Canada, co-founded by Father of Confederation,
who just happens to be the son of the Scottish poet who founded Guelph and wrote 
my favourite poem, "Canadian Reflections." 
We love talking books down here!

Click on the Word on the Street icon  on Shaw TV’s website to watch Dan Clovis, Shaw TV Lethbridge, interview Colette Acheson, Project Manager Word on the Street Lethbridge, and me about writing, books, and what’s in store at Word on the Street 25 September,11am to 5pm, at the Lethbridge Public Library and on the adjoining streets.

(There’s also a good screen shot of my books, Eugenics and the Firewall: Canada’s Nasty Little Secret and Stars Appearing: The Galts’ Vision of Canada, included in this footage.But stay away from the Chinese website on the Stars Appearing link. That book is still available through Volumes Direct.

Eugenics & the Firewall is published by J. Gordon Shillingford Publishing, Inc., represented by the Literary Press Group of Canada, and distributed through U of T press. It’s available online, in university bookstores, independent bookstores,and  through chains such as Chapters.  McNally Robinson, Audreys, Pages, Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, &  Booktopia also sell Eugenics & the Firewall.)

Lethbridge Word on the Street

Lethbridge’s Word on the Street Festival is creating a lot of buzz in Alberta’s fourth largest city.  CKXU.FM, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook,  and Lethbridge Public Library all help to get the word out.  Flash mobs are popping up in unexpected places and authors, musicians, publishers, and booksellers are lining up to get involved.

I’m pleased to say that my bio is up on the Word on the Street Lethbridge  site. And I’m excited to be joining so many great authors at Lethbridge’s WOTS!

In the next few weeks, I’ll be blogging about some of the authors, musicians, and organizations I hope to meet at the festival. Cheers!
