Having connected with the Ottawa International Writers Festival when I moved to town, I’m now the editor of the OIWF’s Event Reviews. I love immersing myself in Can Lit and other great topics twice a year, and have found a great community of readers and writers through the festival. (If you’d like to write for either the blog or Foment, the festival’s literary magazine, please drop me a line). Events I’ve covered include discussions and lauches for books like Tim Cook's Vimy: The Battle and the Legend; Charlotte Gray's The Promise of Canada: 150 Years - People and Ideas That Have Shaped Our Country, and Rachel M. Vincent's edited volume for the Nobel Women's Peace Initiative, When We Are Bold: Women Who Turn Our Upsidedown World Right.
