Upcoming events…  and a link to the blog…

  • Please join me in Picton on this beautiful Saturday, at Macaulay Heritage Park (23 Church Street). I’ll be talking in the Parlour of Macaulay House at 11 am about Lady Franklin and her role as rabble-rouser and advocate for her husband and his lost polar companions. And I’ll be getting my own wood-fired pizza for lunch after!
  • Lady Franklin of Russell Square has been shortlisted for Fiction of the Year award with the Book Publishers’ Association of Alberta!
  • The Canadian Nautical Research Society’s review of Lady Franklin of Russell Square is just out: visit Argonauta, its newsletter bursting at the beams with all things maritime. Enjoy!
  • In January I had a great chat with guest host Carmen Klassen on CBC Ottawa’s All in a Day about Lady Franklin of Russell Square and Lady Franklin herself, my favourite Victorian rabble rouser. Carmen was right to call attention to my work in the Royal Military College’s English, Culture, and Communication Department, without which none of my work would be possible.
