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! :)
