Upcoming events…  and a link to the blog…

  • 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!
  • Join me at the end of April for the 1000 Islands Writers’ Festival in Gananoque, 25-28 April! I will be speaking with food writer and historian Lindy Mechefske about writing history – fact and fiction. I hope to see you there!
  • I have more exciting public talks coming up and I do hope you’ll join me: in June, I will be speaking at one of the Kingston-Frontenac Public Library’s beautiful venues, in August I’ll be participating in the Canadian Nautical Research Society‘s annual symposium, and in September I will be part of the Kingston WritersFest. Stay tuned for details!
  • 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 Department, without which none of my work would be possible.
