You might think Edmonton is cool because it’s got the West Edmonton Mall and nice people. Well, I’m here to tell you it’s also cool because I have been invited there to do some appearances! (As you will know if you’ve been reading the Infrequently Updated Blog). Yes, indeedy! Since Jay-Z was short-sighted enough not to take me up on my kind offer to join his entourage, I am able to travel in support of my own artistic endeavors. That’s right, Jay-Z. I have my own thing going on.
So, should you be in the Edmonton area over the next few days, please join us at one of the following events:
Saturday, September 24
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Wetaskiwin Public Library
Special thanks to librarian extraordinaire, Rachelle Kuzyk for organizing.
Sunday, September 25

Monday, September 26
Indigo, Edmonton South Common
1837 99st NW
Thank you Jodey, Jaimie, Janice and all the staff for not only organizing, but for selling over 200 copies of Woefield! And thank you for taking care of Hen, whose further adventures can be found below. That bird is really getting around.
As a side note, I encourage fans of Yvonne Prinz, author of The Vinyl Princess and All You Get is Me, to keep an eye out for a Prinz sighting. It seems that the cool of Edmonton has lured Y.P. away from her edenic California and Hawaii home bases for a while and she might make an appearance at the Indigo event. Along with…
Hen! Though Hen doesn’t know it yet, she’ll be going home with a lucky Juby Gift Bag Winner. (No, I won’t be in the gift bag, but several of my books will be and so will chicken who has practically been given the keys to the city.)
I hope to see you at one of these events. It won’t be the same without you!
Hen loves young men, even when they wear shirts. (See below if this makes no sense.)
That’s Hen for you. Spreading success wherever she goes.
