TD Book Week, Day 2

Camrose!!!!

Another awesome day. I had a great talk with some of the skateboarding kids at Camrose Composite High School.  Which meant I got to get my bored board on a board board out.

I did three talks and had interested and interesting students for each. These talks were sponsored by the Canada Council, so a big thanks goes out to them. A giant thanks goes out to Nicole Bannick of the Camrose Public library for putting it all together and Brenda Mucz for hosting the event.  Nicole took us to lunch at Stockmens Chophouse

I'm having a blast here in Alberta where I continue to find the people inviting and friendly. I managed to meet a truck driver at a coffee shop who showed me video of his ice road trucking. It was a stunning thing to watch.

Also, it was totally the first time I've ever seen my name in 'lights'

All in all, another great day and I managed to meet up with an old friend who happens to live in Red Deer now. 

What a great experience TD Canada Trust book week is. As I expected, exciting and exhausting.
