Owen Sound Book Signing Event at The Ginger Press Bookshop April 14th, 2018

Owen Sound Book Signing Event for Tom Thomson Journal of My Last Spring!

Tom Thomson will be in Owen Sound!

Or rather, the author of Tom Thomson Journal of My Last Spring will be. A book signing and reading by the author will be held on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 from 12 noon to 2pm at Ginger Press Bookshop at 848 2nd Avenue East Owen Sound, ON N4K 2H3

Please come visit (and buy a book!) In addition to the signing, the author (that’s me!) plans to give a 20-minute talk at 12:30pm, read a few short passages and hang around to talk about all things Tom Thomson.

The event is FREE! (but I hope you buy a book), graciously hosted by our friends at the Ginger Press Bookshop.

For a taste of what to expect, read the feature article about me channeling Tom Thomson in the Ottawa Citizen.

I hope you can make it. If you can’t don’t worry. You can always drop by later and buy the book at the store. I’ll also be holding more events around the province and country, and, if the spirit moves me, I will return to Owen Sound.

More blog entries and details about the book are posted on my site at https://ttlastspring.com/

See you soon!

Tim Bouma
