In May, Julie Lawson attended gala celebrations in Toronto and Thunder Bay, where her book Ghosts of the Titanic was chosen as a Silver Birch Fiction Honour Book (one of the 3 finalists). About 1700 fans cheered the ten nominees at Toronto’s Harbourfront and 2 days later, 1200 young readers did the same in Thunder Bay.
Before leaving for Toronto, Julie presented at Vancouver Island’s BookFest 2012 in Nanaimo. In April she toured the Northwest Territories with school and library readings in Yellowknife and Inuvik.
