A couple of weeks ago, I found out about an event at HarperCollins Canada where Joanna Goodman and Ellen Keith were speaking, so I immediately signed up for it. It was so great! It was also my first time at the HarperCollins Canada offices in downtown Toronto, so that was super exciting too!
We all got copies of their books! I already had a copy of The Home for Unwanted Girls, which I bought at the book launch the previous week, but I was so glad to get a copy of The Dutch Wife!
I love hearing authors speak at these events! As a writer who hopes to one day sit in those chairs, I find them very inspiring. Ellen spoke about how she was thinking about giving up on writing when she got the call that she was going to be published! I can totally relate to that, and I hope to one day get my own work published!
Joanna and Ellen were so nice during the signing! There was a huge line and the rooms were so hot because of the glass walls, but they chatted with each person who was getting their book signed.
And finally, here are my signed copies:
I love going to author events! Who was your favourite author to meet?
