Schuh Embarks on 23-stop Library Tour Across Alberta’s North East
Home town visits especially thrilling
ST. PAUL, ALBERTA 16 October 2013 - “I’m excited, nervous, and gearing up to be very busy,” St. Paul author, Eileen Schuh says. Following her second successful presentation to the children at the North Slave Young Offenders Facility in Yellowknife earlier this month, Schuh is taking a short breather before embarking on a twenty-three stop library tour of north-eastern Alberta.
Schuh’s tour, which includes writing workshops as well as general author presentations, is sponsored by the Northern Lights Library System and kicks off on Monday 21 October 2013 in Myrnam and ends in Cold Lake on November 26th. She will be travelling the length and breadth of one of Alberta’s largest library systems.
“I’ve got my map in front of me so I can now confidently say that I go as far west as Morinville, Gibbons, Bon Accord and the Garrison library in CFB Edmonton, east to Paradise Valley, south to Wainwright and Chauvin and north to Cold Lake and many spots in between,” Schuh says.
Although she’s looking forward to all her visits, her trip to Tofield on Thursday, November 7th at 2pm holds a special thrill. “I was born and raised as Eileen Fairbrother in the Tofield area and returned there for a few years after I was married,” she says. “Since I was first published in 2011, I’ve wanted to go back to my home town and thank the community for nourishing my writing dreams and skills. Now it’s finally going to happen!”
She will also be dropping in to the municipal library in her adoptive community of St. Paul at 5 pm on November 12th. “As I say about St. Paul on my dedication page of my upcoming novel, FIREWALLS, I couldn’t ask for a more supportive, generous, inspiring place to live and write.” The nearby community of Elk Point will host Schuh at 7 pm on Tuesday, November 5th while the Two Hills’ school will be the venue for a writing workshop on Wednesday, November 6th.
Schuh has four books published with two more in the wings. Throughout the tour, she will be promoting, selling and autographing the first two books in her young adult BackTracker series THE TRAZ (and THE TRAZ School Edition), and FATAL ERROR as well as her adult sciFi novella, SCHRÖDINGER'S CAT.
“I’m hoping to have the third book in my Young Adult BackTracker Series, FIREWALLS, ready in time for Christmas, perhaps even for the latter part of my tour.” Her second SciFi, DISPASSIONATE LIES, will be released by WolfSinger Publications in the summer 2014. Her books are available as paperbacks and in all popular ebook formats and can be bought online from Amazon and other fine online book retailers.
“If they are not on the shelves of your local bookstore or library, you can ask to have them ordered in for you,” Schuh explains.
