I will be on hand at the NORTH YORK CENTRAL LIBRARY AUDITORIUM on Monday January 30th to sign copies of SUMMER ON FIRE. I, together with a ‘tough’ group of authors, will be joining in on the fight against Alzheimer’s! My reason for being there will be in support of my grandmother, who was taken by Alzheimer’s several years ago. My very first published piece was in the GLOBE & MAIL Facts & Arguments column…and it was about my grandmother and Alzheimer’s. It was later featured on the Canadian Alzheimer’s Association’s website.

Please come out to support this event. It is near and dear to me. I’m hoping for a great turn out. There will be a lot of authors there…your purchases will help make it successful!

Thanks in advance…and see you there!
