I will be presenting 'The Art of Making A Book' on Friday, October 9, 2015 at McNally Robinson Booksellers from 7:30 - 9:30 PM. Donovan Bergman of Friesens will be joining me to discuss everything you want to know about making a book. It will also include a Q&A. The presentation is sponsored by FlashFest (Winnipeg's Annual Photography Festival), The Manitoba Photo Friends and Friesens. The class is full but we are taking names on a waiting list for a potential second class in January. If you are interested in attending a future class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! We already have about 14 names.
I wish to thank ALL who attended last evening's Winnipeg launch of my new ONTARIO book. It was delightful to be surrounded by family, friends, colleagues and guests. It was a sweet moment to have my little grandson and granddaughter present me with a bouquet of flowers at the event. I enjoyed chatting with folks and mingling afterwards. And that chocolate cake was sumptuous! Thank you to Jamis Paulson, Sharon Caseburg and Michelle Palansky of Turnstone Press (my publisher) for that wonderful evening. McNally Robinson Booksellers know how to launch a book with class. Than you John Toews! Once again, thank you all for the support, for purchasing a book and hope you enjoy 'Ontario' for years to come!
I will be touring the Canadian Prairie Provinces in April following the release of my recent book 'Prairie and Beyond'.
The various events will include some traditional book signings as well as some illustrated presentations. See the list below for an event taking place near you.
