August 24, 2010
I just wrapped up a sensational couple of weeks in my favourite place on earth, Desolation Sound BC. I had an amazing time with my wife and friends and neighbours, as well as the feather, fur and fin that surrounds us on all sides. (I’m also happy to report that my team won the last Crokinole game of the summer in the Sound).
I’m back in Vancouver now and back to work on several different projects for the fall… my debut book Adventures in Solitude has the official release date of Monday September 27, 2010. I’ll be doing all sorts of launches and events for it, and if you’d like me to bring the Adventures in Solitude Show to your fave bookstore or bar, let me know. Thanks to Naomi MacDougall for the awesome cover design above.
In the coming months I’ll also be hosting the Polaris Prize Gala on Monday September 20 in Toronto, and in the immediate future I’ll be taking part in the Peak Performance Bootcamp for MusicBC and the Peak Performance Project up in Princeton BC. Can’t wait to whip some musicians into fighting form!
On the radio dial, next up is The Wild Side, a two-hour Labour Day special on CBC Radio One that I am hosting, all about our encounters with wild animals in Canada. That’s from 4pm – 6pm nationwide. I also extremely excited to finally get back into my beloved hosting chair at CBC Radio 3 for a whole new season, starting with a Labour Day weekend special podcast on one of my favourite topics: booze.
