the Griffons tour Alberta

It begins on Sunday: a suitcase full of books! Pirates in oil country! I fly into Edmonton and from there it's buses and rental cars all around the province, to schools in Lethbridge and a blessing ceremony in Stand Off—lucky me happens to be passing through for a smudging and I'll be there soaking it up, reading, and stocking their library with Missy and airborne resistance.

Here are the public events—where I hope I'll see some friendly faces, when I'm not either plotting my robbery of The Duchess or trying to hug wild horses in Kananaskis.

Edmonton, AB: Sunday, June 8, 2 - 3:30 PM : Audreys Books

Milk River, AB: Tuesday, June 10, 1:00 PM : Milk River Public Library

Stavely, AB: Wednesday, June 11, 1:00 PM : Stavely Public Library

Calgary, AB: Friday, June 13, 4:00 PM : Monkeyshines Childrens' Bookstore

We're squeezing in more signings and chats wherever we can, so keep an eye on the Facebook page if you're in that part of the country. The same is true of media, squeezing wherever we can, starting with a noon interview in Edmonton on Monday the 9th with Portia Clark and the folks at CBC Radio Active.

I can't believe it's here. Big sky time. Will I see you there?
