Gearing Up for GritLit 2008

What is GritLit, you ask? It's a literary festival in Hamilton, Ontario -- and I get to participate this weekend. Friday, I'll be reading at Westdale High School in Hamilton; on Saturday, I read at Terryberry Library. I'm partnered up with Nova Scotia YA author, Don Aker.

So, to gear up for my visit, I'm reading Don's latest book, The Space Between. It's about a 17-year-old guy who goes on vacation to a resort in Mexico's Mayan Riviera. He's got a plan for while he's there -- and let's just say it involves having a room to himself at the resort and well, er, finding a certain someone to share it! I read the first two chapters last night -- and now I'm looking forward to reading more of the book and to meeting its creator. 

Okay, off I go now to do an interview for a Gazette story. This one's about a woman who makes draperies out of linens that were used by French soldiers in the early 1900s. Talk to you tomorrow -- hopefully!

That book sounds nice... though I'm happy my weekend away in Toronto only involved sharing my room with a friend.
Also, the draperies story sounds nice... hopefully you'll post a link, as always
