Montreal events (and why I love Canada)

I'll be doing two readings in Montreal this fall:

Monday, October 16, 2006, at 6:30 p.m.
Fraser-Hickson Library
4855 Kensington Avenue
Montreal, Quebec H3X 3S6
(514) 489-5301

Tuesday, October 17, 2006, at 6:30 p.m.
Jewish Public Library
1, carre Cummings Square (5151 Ste Ste-Catherine)
Montreal, Quebec H3W 1M6
(514) 345-2627

The two readings are sponsored by the Canada Council for the Arts -- the funding was approved yesterday. I get $250 per reading (total: $500), plus up to $600 in travel expense (not including accomodation; the host libraries are separately paying for that). It's a wonderful program.

This is my second Canada Council-sponsored mini-tour this year; in February, I was in Edmonton, thanks to them. My tax dollars at work -- for me! :)

Con*Cept 2006 (Oct. 13-15th) is the proceeding weekend. Will you also make an appearance there?

Yeah, I'd noticed that. At the moment, though, it looks like I'll be in Alberta that weekend -- although I'm not 100% sure.

I certaintly hope to make it to at least one of those events! Do you know what you'll be reading?
