I’m happy to announce that blues artists Robert Davis and Fraser Melvin will perform at the Poplar Lake launch party on Wednesday, October 17 at the Pilot Tavern in Toronto. Robert and Fraser are fixtures in the city’s blues scene. They’ve recently collaborated on Robert’s Cuban Blues CD which is slated for release in November.
Robert and Fraser are fantastic musicians and I’m honoured they’ve agreed to grace the evening. If you would like to attend, you are most welcome. The space is filling so reserve a spot – message me on my Facebook Author Page with your email and I will send you a direct Evite.

Poplar Lake is a stand-alone prequel to my 2015 novel, A Person of Letters. Terry Fallis, two-time winner of Canada’s Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, has said of it, “In Poplar Lake, Ron Thompson has written a captivating story, rich with humour and heart. I didn’t want it to end.”
