In 2017, Barbara Burgess was interviewed live in studio in Quebec City by Saroja Coehlo for CBC “Breakaway” about her novel The Cacouna Caves and the Hidden Mural. She was interviewed by Sonali Karnik for CBC “All in a Weekend” in 2015. In 2012, she appeared on the television program “Meetings with Remarkable People” that aired on Canada’s Super Station NTV to discuss her first published novel The Magic Manuscript: Book One - Voyage to Eve Ilion.
The author has done a half dozen book launches at the following venues: the Baie d’Urfé Library, the Westmount Public Library, the Atwater Library, the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Library, and Banyen Books in Vancouver. Her lectures included a Q & A relevant to issues treated in her historical fiction novels set in Cacouna, Quebec, issues such as the indigenous people of the Lower Saint Lawrence region, climate change, the provincial protests against marine oil terminals, the protection of the Saint Lawrence River, and the preservation of endangered marine life (especially the beluga whales) in the Lower Saint Lawrence region of Quebec.
