The Lonely End of the Rink tour: the last chapter!

After braving extreme winter temperatures and warm audiences in the Canadian prairies, it’s finally time for the last chapter of book tour dates… I’m into the home stretch and happy to be back in BC in the beautiful East Kootenays. Hope to see you there, and thanks to all who braved temperatures as low as -47 in Saskatchewan and Alberta on the weekend.

Musicians at the following dates include:

Tue Dec 10 – the Good Ol’ Goats

Thu Dec 12 – Red Girl

Sun Dec 15 – Jill Barber

(no music act in Kimberley)

    Is it possible that I got a personal delivery today? Someone that looked very much like a goalie drove away just as I opened the door to say thanks for the parcel!!

    Is it possible that I got a personal delivery on Saturday? Or do you hire people that look like you to drop parcels off? Thanks in any case… can’t wait to read it. Your first book was a popular Christmas/birthday gift for people that I hope to lure to Desolation Sound one day!

    Hi Jana! Yeah, that was me! I had a game down the street on Saturday morning and noticed you live close by so I thought I’d just drop it off! Cheers and thanks. -GL
