Very excited that the book tour for Outside In is about to begin – see the first leg of events listed below. It seems like it has been a very long journey of reflecting, writing, and going through the process of editing and publishing. But here we are!
I always wanted to write a book like this and many of the ideas and experiences of how change takes place have been rattling around my brain for years. I also learned a lot along the way, particularly reflecting on what happens to women in the political arena, and how sexism still pervades the political culture. This is something I feel I am only beginning to dig into.
I could not have gotten to where I am now with this book without the help and encouragement of many people, as reflected in the acknowledgement, but a special shout out to my partner Kim Elliott who has been there for me every step of the way, with patience and wisdom.
I hope you will join me at a book event in a city near you! So far we have events scheduled in the following cities:
Toronto, May 15
Vancouver, May 22
Winnipeg, May 27
Ottawa, May 29 and May 30
Hamilton, June 9
Mississauga, June 9
Hope to see you at one of the tour events and find what you think of Outside In. If you don’t see your city on the list and want to help organize something local, let me know!
