August 26th.

From an ongoing work in progress: a monologue I wrote, performed by beautiful human being, talented actor and filmmaker (and cousin!) Trevor Kristjanson at the launch for Forgetting How to Breathe.

The monologue is not from the novel, but imagines one Icelandic immigrant’s experience during a true moment in history, the wreck of the SS Copeland.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my FORGETTING HOW TO BREATH BOOK TOUR PART 2 this wee in BC’s gorgeous Okanagan Valley. Next up, a stop in Carmen Manitoba, and then Jodi Carmichael (Family of Spies) will join me for BOOK TOUR PART THREE in southwest Manitoba on May 23 and 24th.

It will be a busy two days with stops in Brandon, Shilo and Rapid City:

  • Kirkcaldy Heights School
  • École O’Kelly School
  • King George School
  • Book Club
  • Rapid City Public Library

The book club will be hosting a pot luck for our visit. We are thrilled, and can’t wait!
