PARIS 2011

For the fourth year in a row, Vicki, Victoria and I are headed for the Salon du Livre in Paris. Some tours are for me...this one is for them.

Something I haven't done for too long now is recommend a book...NO... in this case, recommend an author. Richard Wagamese came to me from THE most reliable source - my Kokum in heaven. She led me to his new One Story, One Song and that turned into five of Richard's books that are in my bag en route to Paris. If you've not read Richard yet, are you ever in for a treat. He is everything perfect in a writer - soft, sensitive, nostalgic, loving (Richard loves his wife Deb and his dog Molly in the exactl same way I love my wife and dog)...He is giving and open and expressive and... I can't recall anything quite like him. And as an added bonus, Richard is Ojibway!

Miigwetch Nokum!
