Happy Fall!

The seasons have changed since I last posted, and in my neighbourhood, it is obvious that fall has arrived. This photo was taken on my street, an area of Vancouver that is full of beautiful old trees.

I had a small accident a couple of weeks ago and have been recuperating from a concussion. I haven't been able to read or write much (not easy for a writer!) but I have been able to take a short walk each day. And what a lovely time of year for a stroll!

In other news, there have been a lot of interesting literary events taking place, and I will be back soon to post more about them.

Until then, I wish you a happy and productive fall — a great time of year to read all the new books being introduced to the world.

Wonderful News!

Alice Munro has won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature! The Nobel committee called her "a master of the contemporary short story." And so she is.

Congratulations to her! And to us! It is a memorable day for Canada.
