My first time on Global TV’s The Morning Show was in October 2014. Since that time, this Book Lover has had a unique opportunity to curate over two hundred books for all reading tastes based on the goal of finding a story for everyone of all ages.
We love our city, and our book ride has the ability to connect neighbourhoods, readers, and changemakers, resulting in concrete, lasting improvements for Toronto: promoting complete streets, supporting local businesses, and highlighting literacy.
Established in 2014.
The Earth Day BOOK TALK was launched as a fundraiser for the CEC Educational Foundation in 2016. Authors shared how nature influenced their writing. In 2017 a family eco program was added. WORDS IN THE WOODS in 2018 included a full day of writing workshops, a family program with a children’s author and our renowned Book Talk Fundraiser with keynote speaker Kate Harris.
We are branding the event to acknowledge the historic Mattawa River. We will be expanding again just as a river overflows in the spring.
Join us at the Mattawa River Writers & Arts Festival where we are creating connections with our natural world through the arts and in the river! August 18th launches from the dock Paddle and Prose with Roy MacGregor … dip your paddle for some great Canadian stories!
Save the date for a weekend in the woods with words April 26-28 2019.
My role as Co-captain of Cycle Toronto’s Ward 13 Bike Group is to promote cycling in my community. This is both through community events to assist cyclists and increase the public’s exposure to cyclists but also at the political level to advocate for better cycling infrastructure, making cycling safer both for the well-being of present cyclists, and to encourage more people to cycle.
