If you should find yourself in Yellowknife next month...

Why not attend The NorthWords Writers Festival? But even if you can't make it, please follow the link and tell me:

1. Which author(s) would you be most interested in meeting?
2. Which events(s) would you most like to attend?

I'm interested in meeting Richard Van Camp because I've interviewed him over the phone and been at the same events but I've never really spoken with him in person.
I think I might get a mentoring session as you suggested, too!

Anita Daher, for personal reasons, as she is one of my online friends, that I have yet to meet in person. You'll find her blog on my sidebar.

I met Anita through one of those strange twists of fate. I googled a reporter who was wanting to interview me and found a story he'd written about Anita. Incredibly she'd lived in the same places that I had, just never at the same time. Turned out we have friends in common.

Aw, MAN! That's the weekend I'm out of town. I missed it last year, too.

Well bummer, no chance of me being there, but if I were I'd most like to meet Jim Green. I think he'd be very entertaining and fun to kibitz with. Plus I happen to make a pretty good cranberry muffin. So chances are pretty good I could ingratiate myself.

As for the event, I'd tackle the elevator people workshop. I'd enjoy doing the writing exercise but even more so seeing what everyone else came up with.

As a science geek myself I would be torn between Jay Ingram and Jamie Bastedo but I would also really want to see Joseph Boyden because his novels have really tugged at my heart.

I wish I could be there! I could meet you and attend Telling the Northern Story. Ever since I read Late Nights on Air I have been adding books re: the north to my TBR. Also, I have seen Joseph Boyden before and he does excellent readings and Q and A's. John, if you haven't seen him live, I highly recommend it!
