It was a full house tonight for a fantastic Conundrum Press launch! We welcomed Sherwin Tjia, Kris Bertin and Alexander Forbes, Cole Pauls and Howard Chackowicz to La Petite for a series of slide shows and talks.
First up were Kris Bertin and Alexander Forbes, who brought us into the world of their new book The Cursed Hermit by giving us a rundown of the Knotty Pines School for Boys and Girls. "If you see something strange remember that it's cold and flu season! Talk to the headmistress - she'll give you some tea to straighten you out!"
Howard Chackowicz, whose new book Nothing to See Here arrived hot off the press, presented a random smattering of gag drawings that had the audience laughing! Welcome to Fish Town everyone!
Cole Pauls came all the way from Vancouver to talk to us about his wonderful Dakwakada Warriors. He gave us an overview of the different aspects of his book and its origins. We learned about the Southern Tutchone and Tahltan, and the Aishihik dialect used in the graphic novel as Pauls told us about his language teacher/collaborators.
A terrific evening was had by all!
If you weren't able to brave the elements for this evening's launch, be sure to stop by for a signed copy before they run out!
