Today, 1pm! : Sunday, Sept 29th! Kid's Day!

Today -  Sunday, September 29th we will be having an afternoon party at the bookstore! We are delighted to welcome local illustrator Isabelle Arsenault and author Jean Pendziwol (joining us all the way from Thunder Bay) at 1 p.m. for a reading and signing of their new children's book Once Upon a Northern Night. Then Kid Koala will be here for an audio performance based on his graphic novel Space Cadet!

Isabelle Arsenault has illustrated numerous children's books in French and English, including some of our store favourites: Virginia Wolf, which won the Governor General's Award for children's literature, and the children's graphic novel Jane, the Fox and Me, recently translated into English and published by Groundwood books. We are delighted to welcome Isabelle back to the bookstore to celebrate the launch of Once Upon a Northern Night!

Jean E. Pendziwol was born and raised in northwestern Ontario where she draws on the culture, history and geography of the region for inspiration for her stories.  She has eight published picture books for children in addition to having a diverse career as a freelance writer for magazine and commercial purposes.We are excited that she is traveling all the way to Montreal for the launch of her new book!

Kid Koala presents Space Cadet, a “quiet time” immersive headphone experience based on his second graphic novel. Dubbed “a triumph of whimsy” by Spin magazine, the audience listens through individual headphone systems as Kid Koala brings his Space Cadet score to life on a piano and turntables, accompanied by delicate animations inspired by his book. Through a special collaboration with International Flavors and Fragrances Inc., the world’s foremost experts in the art of perfumery, Kid Koala also add custom scents to the experience, making it a true feast for all the senses.
