As MaryAnn and I get ready to go to Seattle, it occurs to me that I've never mentioned this trip to you,
my loyal and neglected newsletter readers. Shame on me. You can find full details on it and the
upcoming Widdershins tour at my spiffy new Web site, designed and maintained by my good friend Rodger Turner.
And for those of you who live in the Ottawa area, our annual book/yard sale will be delayed until June 24th
this year, because of said book tour, and also because of the book launch we're going to have at Patty's Pub
on June 20th. Details about that are also on my site: www.charlesdelint.com
I'm literally minutes away from leaving for the airport, so I'll just stay long enough to mention to you fellow
music junkies that while I'm still obsessing over KT Tunstall's music, the Artic Monkeys and Dave
Alvin's West of the West have also been getting lots of airplay in my office and car. Oh, and
I'm mourning the loss of Chris Daughtry from American Idol last night. I didn't want him to win (because I'd rather
he got to make the album he wants to make), but I did want to keep listening to him through to the finals...
Hope to see some of you at the museum this Sunday in Seattle, at the book launch, or on the tour. Stay well and take care of each other.

It would be great to meet you if I happen to be in your neck of the woods.
Oh, and I forgot to mention last time out, that one of my soundtracks for this summer is definitely going to be Susie & Sid's Under the Covers Vol. 1, a collection of sixties songs performed with sweet harmonies and jangly guitars. As it is, I've been playing it daily for the past howsoever many weeks. Susie & Sid, by the way, are Susanna Hoffs and Matthew Sweet.

I really enjoyed meeting all of you who came out to the various signings on the recent short tour for Widdershins—thanks so much for your support. Mythic Journeys was a fabulous ending to it all.
But it's not completely over. While we were in Atlanta for Mythic Journeys, MaryAnn and I recorded some music and conversation for Anne Strainchamps' To the Best of Our Knowledge show which will be broadcast on Wisconson Public Radio on Sunday, June 18th. It's a special show with a Midsummer Night's Eve theme that also features our good friend Holly Black. You can get more info at:
You can also listen to the show on-line, or pull it up from their archives if you happen to miss it while it's airing.
Then, on Tuesday, June 20th, we have our Ottawa launch to celebrate the publication of my 60th book, Widdershins. The event takes place at Patty's Pub (1186 Bank St., in Old Ottawa South at the corner of Bank and Ossington; 613 730-2434), and includes a reading, some live music, and a signing. While you can certainly bring your own books, there will be books available at the venue.
And lastly, our annual book & yard sale is happening on Saturday, July 24th this year (with
a rain date of Sunday the 25th). Here is more information and directions.
I hope those of you who live in the Ottawa area can make it to either, or even both events. And as I mentioned before, thanks once again for all your support for this book, and the rest of my body of work.
Take care of each other.

Sorry to be back in your mailbox so soon, but a reader (hello Lisa M!) pointed out a rather important typo
in the last mini-newsletter, to wit: the date of the book sale is June 24, not July 24 as I wrote earlier.
Here is more information and directions.

Are we already almost at the end of another year? Is it really Christmas tomorrow? I don't practice any organized religion, but I still like Christmas because people are usually in a better mood than usual at this time of year. You almost get the feeling that we could all get along in this old world of ours.
So from our household to yours, no matter what faith you practice, we wish you Merry Christmas and the best for the upcoming new year.
Charles & MaryAnn
