The Fruit Hunters launch!

Here are pictures from last Thursday's launch of Adam Gollner's book, The Fruit Hunters. The event was a resounding success and probably the most fun I've ever had while working at the store.

The buzzing crowd feasted on apricot beer donated by Pop Montreal, rhubarb and citrus punch by Michelle from An Endless Banquet and key-lime cupcakes by Reema from Cocoa Locale...

...but from the moment that Adam got onstage to begin his presentation...

...the audience was spellbound.

As Adam regaled us with tales from his travels in search of exotic fruit, he showed us the bran muffin-shaped shells of paradise nuts...

The very rare and controversial coco-de-mer (also known as "the lady fruit")...

And a very ripe durian that filled the store with a strong stinky-sweet aroma.

What a great evening! Many thanks to everyone involved! All pictures by Raf Katigbak (Thanks, Tiny Raf!)

Don't forget to stop by the store to pick up your copy of The Fruit Hunters!
