Oh yes, and then there was the reading at Novel Idea Bookstore in Kingston on March 10th. I read from my novel, Ile d'Or, and Elizabeth Greene read both from her latest book, Moving, and also some new poems written when she was in Chile at a workshop recently.

Novel Idea is one of those independent bookstores that enhance a community and make you feel welcome. The owners, Oscar and Joanne, are personable and knowledgeable with a good selection of books to choose from. What a delight. As were the treats Joanne and Elizabeth provided before and after the readings. I ought to have asked Joanne for her recipe for macaroons! Instead, I was pleasantly occupied with different people who had come to the reading who wanted to know more about either me or one of my books.

Thanks to Novel Idea!
