Hello, friends. Tomorrow is Thursday, November 29 and I will be in Calgary, Alberta! Specifically, I will be doing two readings at different branches of the Calgary Public Library.

Reading 1:
Crowfoot Library 

8665 Nose Hill Drive

11-12:30 p.m.
Reading 2:
Village Square Library

2623 56 St NE

2 – 3 p.m.

Both readings are open to the public so if you’re in the area, I’d love to meet you. I’ll also be signing after each reading.

I am really looking forward to visiting Calgary for the first time, but for the past few days I’ve also been consumed by an extremely worthy question: what will I read on the way? I have a roughly 12-hour journey each way, if you factor in transit time. It won’t be my favourite part of this week, that’s certain, but it’s also a terrific chance to immerse myself in a few books. So far, I’m thinking of these.

I’ve read bits and pieces of The Urban Bestiary, and it’s absolutely delightful. I can’t wait to learn to see all these common (and frequently pesky) urban animals through Haupt’s affectionate, knowledgeable eyes.

I’m really quite excited about Death Comes to Pemberly. I’m just a little nervous that my hopes might be too high.

My friend Jill recommended this one, with the strict warning that I might find myself bawling in public. I am okay with that.

Any other suggestions, readers? For me, a travel book needs to be extremely compelling, so that I can read through discomfort and frustration. I need to feel as though I’m spending time with someone smart and interesting. And apart from that, I’m wide open. Suggestions?

    Hi ying! I love your books so much and can’t wait till the rivals in the city! Anyway, some books I would recommend is “Libertad” by Alma Fulleronton, it is a bit shorter, bu its extremely amazing and I almost cried! There is also a young adult book called “in the shadow of the lamp” by sussane Dunlap. it took place in the 1800s during Crimean war and it’s based with Florence nightingale, it’s historical fiction but it is really amazing! These books are my favourites along with your booksThe Agency. I hope you liked my suggestions! I love your books by the way :p

    My goodness, Kelley – I have never even heard of In the Shadow of the Lamp, so thank you very much for mentioning it, and for suggesting Libertad. I’m thrilled to know you really enjoy the Agency. Thanks, too, for waiting so patiently for Rivals!
