Here’s the lowdown on our event in Montreal. Westmount Public Library
has very kindly agreed to let us use their Westmount Room on the evening of Thursday, May 29 for our next event. Our sincere thanks to Ann Moffat, the Director, and Donna Lach, Programming and Outreach Librarian, who have been most kind and generous in their support.
Their enthusiasm for the project is really heart-warming. So too is the support we’re getting from the local paper, the Westmount Examiner,
where Matthew Surridge is preparing an article on us and the book.
I’ve made a small poster/invitation (above and below) which is presently in pdf form, so if anyone would like a copy please let me know as the limits of blogging technology (and my capacity to understand these things) mean I can’t make this illustration more readable here.
These are the details:
