Upcoming Events

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all *in-person* book events have been CANCELLED until further notice. Below you’ll find information on virtual/online events that I’ll be participating in. I’m also available to do book club visits via Skype or Zoom–please get in touch if you would like to discuss this opportunity!

I love doing book events, so if you are interested in having me speak at your literary festival/conference/class, or if you would like to bring me to your local bookstore, please do get in touch. PLEASE NOTE: I cannot do public events in spaces that are not wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair accessible means, at minimum, that an event has wheelchair-accessible entry (no stairs) and easy access to wheelchair-accessible washrooms. A wheelchair accessible stage (or no stage at all) is also appreciated if at all possible. Further accessibility measures (ASL, captioning, scent-free environments, etc) are always welcomed and encouraged. For tips on how to make your literary event accessible, check out this great resource.
