During POP Mtl, we were delighted to co-host an event with Kids POP, featuring a reading and signing for the picture book Once Upon a Northern Night with author Jean Pendziwol (who joined us all the way from Thunder Bay!) and local illustrator Isabelle Arsenault. We were later joined by Kid Koala for an interactive audio experience!
Jean and Isabelle chatted before the event. Although Isabelle illustrated the book, Jean had never had the chance to meet her in person, so they were both excited to get to talk face to face for the first time.
Jean read her book to an enraptured audience.
Isabelle brought her drawing supplies and drew beautiful little pictures in the books of all her fans.
Our guests were kind enough to stick around for over an hour to sign books!
Then Kid Koala arrived and we all put on headphones for the performance!
Kid Koala played music to an animation of his graphic novel Space Cadet.
And the audience got to participate, on camera!
Thanks to everyone who came out! We were so delighted to host this event and have everyone here at the store. If you missed the event, we still have copies of both Once Upon a Northern Night and Kid Koala's Space Cadet here at the store!
