Bravest Writer in the World/Bravest Audiences in the World

JEHaubretia2015

I am awarding myself the Bravest Writer in the World Award, and my audiences the last week the Bravest Audiences in the World Award, after what has been a highly difficult two weeks for me medically, resulting in a dodgy quality of readings.

I limped through my readings for Douglas College’s LitFest and Swoon, neither of which I could, in the end, prep for: just showing up and reading took all my juice.  I am usually impecable with timing with readings, but at Douglas I went over, and apologize to the audience, my hosts and co-reader.  On Wed night, at Fanny Bay, I needed to sit while reading and read far too long.  On Thursday, reading on Hornby, I was full on sick.

Even though quite unwell, I was delighted to read four places last week: Douglas College’s LitFest, Swoon, Fat Oyster Reading Series in Fanny Bay and on Hornby Island. Thank you to my generous hosts and my accomplished co-readers. And of course to the audiences–we couldn’t do it without you. Lovely to see a turn-out of 60 plus listeners at Fanny Bay!

Here is the Fanny Bay Flyer with generous reviews of my work:
