  1. Hello Gabrielle, I’m a Teacher-Librarian with the York Catholic District School Board in southern Ontario (Toronto). Each year I organize a Literary event that brings together all of our high school book clubs reading the White Pine books. For the event we invite one of the authors from the nominated list of books. I was wondering if you just might be in Ontario on April 10. I know this is probably a long shot but nonetheless I thought I would try.
    Will you FACETIME or SKYPE with schools/classrooms?

  2. Hello Gabrielle!
    I’m a Teacher-Librarian at St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School in Southern Ontario.
    I was wondering if you will be in Toronto for school presentations and workshops anytime between January 2016 and May 26th?
    We would love to have you come out to our school!
