The Call of the Sleeping Giant

I’m on my way out the door to the Sleeping Giant Writers Festival. (A trip that will involve both water and air travel.) The Festival is held annually in Thunder Bay, Ontario, this year from August 28th-31st. Other presenters includes Scott Steedman, Leilah Nadir, Sheree-Lee Olson, Fred Stenson, Betsy Struthers, Moira Farr and the fabulous Lynn Coady. From the Web site:
The largest literary festival in Northern Ontario, held in the shadow of Thunder Bay's Sleeping Giant, the Sleeping Giant Writers Festival brings premier Canadian authors to the city for a weekend of workshops, readings, and interaction with festival attendees.
If you’re in the area, check the schedule and come by. It sounds like a really great festival. I’ll be taking part in several signing events, a gala (when have I ever missed a gala?) and teaching a couple of workshops: one on the art of the interview, and another on writing mystery and thriller fiction. More details are here.
