Remember this post from a while back? Bet you were wondering what happened to that whole fuss, eh?

Well, the Margaret Atwood lunch hasn’t happened yet, but it’s about to.

Two days from now – December 9th, 2011 – I’ll be joining the Grand Dame of Canadian Letters herself along with three other lucky winners, and seeing Toronto through her eyes. I read The Blind Assassin to prepare myself, but I don’t know if that will be enough.

It’s exciting but nerve-wracking. I hope I won’t turn into a gibbering idiot in her presence, and that the other contest winners will be easy-going people. I’m not even sure how many people there will be – there are the contest winners, of course, but I’m guessing that there will also be at least one representative from the library to take part as well.

Anyways, nothing substantive to report yet. Just issuing a reminder that no, I am not dreaming this up out of whole cloth.
