Buying Books From from Anywhere

with one comment

No matter where you live on this big blue marble, you probably have access to a retailer that carries Finding Home in the Promised Land, a personal history of homelessness and social exile (J.Gordon Shillingford, 2015). Here’s a link to my list of online and traditional stores that either stock or take special orders for Finding Home in the Promised Land, a personal history of homelessness and social exile (J. Gordon Shillingford, October 2015): Buying Finding Home in the Promised Land from almost anywhere.

I would like to thank all the bookstores and venues that supported my work in 2015. It looks like 2016 will also be a busy and productive year for workshops and author events.

This and more at the Galt Museum in Lethbridge this fall:

 
DEC 07 Coal, Culture and Confederation with Jane Harris-Zsovan. 
Three generations of Galt men –John, Sir Alexander and Elliott 
– shared a poetic vision for a united and vibrant Canada.
Lethbridge, the only Canadian city co-founded by a 
Father of Confederation, 
is a living example of the Galts’ Canadian dream.

Eugenics and the Firewall: Canada’s Nasty Little Secret and I attended Lethbridge’s WOTS

with 2 comments

Lethbridge’s Word on the Street Festival  proved that a small city can successfully put together and event usually found only in larger cities. There were a few first year glitches and oversights, but overall, WOTS was fantastic for Alberta authors and it was wonderful promotion for the City of Lethbridge.

I loved reading from Eugenics and the Firewall  and participating in the “Getting into Writing” panel.A

Above, is a picture of some of the books, including Eugenics and the Firewall: Canada’s Nasty Little Secret, that were on sale at the University of Lethbridge Bookstore WOTS tent. (If you’re in Southern Alberta, and would like a copy of Eugenics and the Firewall, please drop by the University of Lethbridge bookstore. You’ll also find it in Chapters, McNally Robinson, Audreys, the U of T Bookstore, and dozens more independent and university bookstores throughout Canada.

You can also borrow Eugenics and the Firewall: Canada’s Nasty Little Secret from a local public library,  including the Lethbridge Public Library, The Edmonton Public Library, University of Manitoba libraries, The University of Saskatchewan Library, Toronto Public Library Queen’s University Library, and the University of Calgary Library.  Here’s a  partial listing of some of the libraries Eugenics and the Firewall is available in throughout Canada and around the world.

Readings and Events

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!
