There is so much kidlit goodness going on in Toronto tomorrow! Here are three free, all-ages events for all of the bookworms in your family:
TORONTO ROALD DAHL DAY
Lillian H. Smith Library (College and Spadina)
This is Small Print Toronto’s fourth annual celebration of all things Dahl. There are fun Dahl-esque happenings all day, including movement and dance workshops, DIY crafts, a screening of the GREAT film version of Matilda, and the Story Contest Awards Ceremony. As one of the contest judges I can say that Toronto has some amazing budding writers and you are in for a treat!
BLOOR GLADSTONE LIBRARY CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS
Bloor Gladstone Branch (1101 Bloor Street West)
This is one of the prettiest branches of the TPL, and one of the oldest! Drop by for a meet and greet with local authors, including myself, Dave Bidini, Sara Marlowe, Phillipa Dowding and Rick Jacobson. Books will be available for sale!
HOW TO CURSE IN HIEROGLYPHICS Book Launch Party!
Dominion on Queen (500 Queen St E)
You all know Lesley Livingston as the author of such sweeping paranormal YA epics as the Wondrous Strange trilogy, The Never trilogy, and the Starling trilogy, but did you know she is also a great middle grade writer? Come celebrate the release of this fun new series at an all-ages event. If you’ve never been to a Livingston book party you’re in for a treat. Expect music, fun, and popcorn!
