If you’re trundling around Southeast Ontario this weekend and wondering where to duck in from the rain, please join me at the 1000 Islands Writers’ Festival, taking place in Gananoque! I’ll be sharing the stage on Saturday morning with Lindy Mechefske, food writer and author of Sir John’s Table and Out of Old Ontario Kitchens. We’ll be talking about the pleasures of historical research, and recreating worlds that have already passed. Lots of other authors and events, too, to enjoy. Hope to see you there.
