TORONTO - Anne Murray is hitting the road with a cross-Canada tour, but this time it's to promote her upcoming autobiography, "All of Me."
The singer's publisher, Knopf Canada, says Murray will visit 13 cities beginning Oct. 29 in Toronto.
The book is set for release Oct. 27.
It promises to outline Murray's 40-year career, starting with her humble beginnings in the coal-mining town of Springhill, N.S.
Murray achieved her first gold record in 1970 with "Snowbird," and went on to rack up a string of top-selling hits including "Talk It Over in the Morning," "What About Me" and "You Needed Me."
Her book tour will stop at retail outlets across the country, in cities including Dartmouth, N.S., Moncton, N.B., Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, as well as the Ontario cities of London, Burlington, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury.
