At the pre-party with Rhonda.
At the pre-party with Janet.
Book Signing with my mom. Mom has now sat next to me at my Saskatoon launches four or five times and it is always a special moment. What a thing to be doing together! Never would have thought about it so many years ago while milking cows together in the barn!

Beautiful cheese plates prepared by the Prairie Ink restaurant (thanks Clint and Justin)
Mom is famous
If you look closely, you can see that Mom is also being asked to sign the book. (A few days earlier she appeared with me on my interview on CTV – now she’s famous!)
Waiting to go on
With Herb. Those last few seconds before you go on stage in front of any crowd are always special. Sometimes nervous, always excited.
Anthony Bidulka Being interviewed by super local personalities Penney Murphy & Brent Loucks
Lots of laughter during my interview with Penney & Brent (not pictured). Lower left hand side is my sister Fran
Questions for the interview were solicited via social media
My inquisitors! Brent & Penney.
Anthony Bidulka With Herb & Mom
Delia & Don Cambridge, Paul, Ingrid, Bill
My grade 12 principal, Don Cambridge explaining how he taught me typing and bookkeeping – so basically he made me what I am (writer & a chartered accountant)
James, Kathryn, Dan
James & Dan came to the launch despite having just got off a plane from Paris and no doubt suffering jet lag.
With events coordinator Marcy Hildebrandt.
Marcy put together the very cool posters – including the one in the background which will be sold off with proceeds going to Camp fYrefly Sask. The lovely bouquet – which I incidentally match – was from my family.
With sister Hope & our highschool principal Don Cambridge and Mrs. Cambridge
Laughing my way through the signing
Anthony Bidulka At the head of the line
Getting ready to start the first signing with my mom at my side. Several people actually asked her to sign the book too – she loved it!
The signing line. We went with a new launch concept this time. An hour of signing. Then on stage interview. Then another hour of signing. All the while wine & cheese being served.
Candy & Andrea.
Andrea, a fellow writer, was one of three people who went right home and read the whole book in one sitting.
