Book Launch

Catherine Austen Invite-English

Gatineau/Ottawa friends (and out-of-towners who enjoy a Sunday drive), please come out to the Aylmer (Lucy Faris) Public Library on Sunday, March 30, from 2:00-4:00 p.m., to celebrate the release of my latest middle-grade novel, 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6. There will be lots of refreshments, crafts for the kids, live music from local singer/songwriter Anni del Sol, a phobia quiz (recycled from my Walking Backward launch – score one for packrats), a contest or two, and an open mic session for fearless young writers. And books, of course.

A huge thank-you, in advance, to la bibliothèque municipale de Gatineau for providing the gorgeous room and refreshments. Thanks to my indie bilingual bookstore, Michabou, for handling book sales. Thanks to my publisher, Lorimer, for the awesome invitations. And thanks to everyone who shows up or sends their warm wishes.

I haven’t had a launch for ages and I’m so excited to throw this party. (And yes, there will be baklava from La Brioche, the Lebanese bakery on Bank Street – I know some people missed that at the last launch. I will try not to eat it all this time.)

  2. This sounds like so much fun! If only I were anywhere near Quebec, I would be /so there/.
