BC Book Prizes On Tour

April 07, 2008

Pre-Tour Greetings from Heather Burt

Adam's Peak Cover


I’m delighted to be going on tour in the beautiful Kootenays later this month and look forward to meeting as many readers as possible.

It’s an honour to have my novel, Adam’s Peak, nominated for the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. If you’re not yet familiar with the book, please come over to my website and have a look around! The site has a contact page, which can be used for comments and questions.

If you live in the Kootenay region, I hope to see you at your school or library soon!

Best wishes,
