Friday past, October 11th, I had the tremendous pleasure of reading from Hallow Hour live via skype to a group of girls students in Bulera, Uganda. I believe in universal girl-child education and am a supporter of the Teachers Action for Girls campaign of the Canadian Teachers Federation. The reading was an amazing experiece and an awesome way to celebrate UN International Day of the Girl Child . A big hi to all my friends in Uganda!
CONGRATULATIONS ALICE MUNRO!! Winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature - the first female Canadian to do so. This is a great day for Canadian literature and a great day for women writers. What a role model!
