CANSCAIP and Charity Book Fair

Tomorrow!


It's the yesouiCANSCAIP Imagine A Story Conference! Lots of great workshops and seminars, presented by local authors and illustrators, including Jill Murray, Yeyo, Monique Polak and Marsha Skrypuch.

In other news, I spent the last little while organizing a book fair at work, which we held last week.

Here's the announcement:


Here's the layout:


Here's me putting Diana Gabaldon's book front and centre:


And here's me!:


Raised close to 900$ for a children's library in Tanzania!

So... Are you rooting for Barcelona or Manchester United?

Wah! That's so cool! Great job on the book fair - I remember the first one I ever went to. It was like releasing a kid into a candy store. [g]

Well, as fond as I am of football, I don't watch any of it -- but since my professor will be inevitably be rooting for Barcelona, I have a feeling I'll be siding with Manchester U just to be contrary. [g] How about you?

Yea... I really really didn't need to pick up any more books [g]

I used to be a Man U fan back when all the bands I listened to loved them. But, er, might root for Barcelona now on the odd chance that Rosa might have...

LOL. Could this be proof that life imitates art? [vbg]

I love looking at all those books! And you did a great job raising money.

I tagged you on my blog, by the way.

Yay for book fairs!

And I'm rooting for Barcelona. Man U is not my favourite team! :(
Look at all those books! How wonderful to raise so much $ for Tanzania.

Hope you had a great time at the CANSCAIP conference. I usually go to the Toronto one, and always learn a lot!

Thanks for sharing such lovely photos. Well if it's photos of books, then it's lovely! But what an awesome job you did organising it!

Thanks everyone for coming by! Now that the fair's over, we're trying to set up a permanent charity bookshop somewhere in the office building...
