I received an E-Mail from Chapters, West Edmonton Mall that All the Spring Break Events they had scheduled have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This means that the Book Signing Event I was to participate in on March 26th will no longer take place due to this cancellation. I am happy to say that they will reschedule at some future time. I will let you know when this will happen. I was really looking forward to be there because Spring Break is a special time, however, whenever I will be there and see you all will be a special time for me.

THE CHAPTERS STORE AT WEST EDMONTON MALL has scheduled a SPECIAL BOOK SIGNING EVENT during SPRING BREAK, March 23rd to March 27th. I am pleased and most happy to say that I have been asked to participate, as one of the Local Authors, to take part in this Event by coming in to the Store on Thursday, March 26th from 11 AM to 4 PM for a Book Signing. I look forward to your stopping at my Table at Chapters, WEM, to talk to me and ask me to sign one of my books to you. Reading and learning are an integral part of every students life and making book purchases during Spring Break is also what students appreciate doing at that time. SEE YOU AT CHAPTERS!

The Holiday Season is quickly approaching and who does not love this time of year. We all look forward to the snow, the lights glowing everywhere. To prepare we decorate our homes and make lists of persons to whom we want to give gifts. We make plans for shopping and selecting just the right gift for each of the persons on our list. Families and friends, the young or older and decide what you think each would best enjoy receiving. For those of us who are readers and like to sit by the fireplace or other warm spot and read would be thrilled to receive a book and I have a simple and convenient solution for easy purchasing of a book or books; as a gift or for your own reading pleasure. I am an author of books and will be at three locations for a "Book Signing and Selling Event". Three books for Children and one for Adult enjoyment will be available for your selection. THE TEGLER BUILDING at 9918 - 149 Street. This Signing and Book Selling Event is planned for Thursday, September 24th, 2019 from 11 AM to 3 PM. THE RENAISSANCE at their Fall Bazaar. It is located on 89 Avenue & 156 Street. Easy to find - just behind the Meadowlark Shopping Center. This Event is on Saturday, September 26th from 10 AM to 3 PM. There will be other crafters there as well with ideas of their own for gift giving. THE CANTERBURY COURT located at 8403 - 142 Street. The date of this Event will be on Thursday, November 7th from 10 AM to 2 PM. I look forward to seeing you at one or all the locations and talking to you about my books or just meeting and chatting with you.

It has seemingly been a long summer possibly due to the fact that the weather was so bleak, cold and extremely wet as you all well know. I was at the Callingwood Farmer's Market every week and that was one of the bright spots of the Summer because so many of you were there, rain or shine. It is now the Autumn season and I am looking forward to seeing some Autumn colors soon. The Market will be open until the Thanksgiving Weekend. Thank you all for stopping to talk and to the many who purchased one of my books and later came to tell me how you enjoyed my story. To the children who came by to give my a high five or tell me how much they liked the read. Also to the adults who said how much they liked, laughed and could relate to some of the happenings and situations in my book "As It Was", My Memoirs and Musings. It was great talking to you. I also want to say 'thanks' to the the customers who shopped at the West Side and the West Edmonton Mall Chapter Stores and who stopped at my table during my Book Signing Events there to talk or make a purchase. Again, discussions with the children as well as the adults were most encouraging.

I was so looking forward to Sunday, May 5th and being at the opening of the Callingwood Farmers Market, however, I am sad to inform that I will not be there. I'm certain it is obvious to everyone that the weather is not co-operating and the wet and snow is not the best condition to which one would expose books to. It is also rather cold outdoors and not a pleasant way to spend the day for oneself as well. My decision is to wait till the next Sunday and of course, the Market is open every Sunday over the Summer and into the Fall season. I plan on being there as often as possible and hope to see you all soon.
