JUNE MEETING at The Bookshelf in Guelph (Wed Jun 13)

  • Wednesday, June 13, 2018

MEETING Wed. Jun. 13 

LOCATION: The Bookshelf, 41 Quebec Street in Guelph 519 821-3311

JOIN US IN GUELPH: Our June meeting is the last of the season (no meetings in July or August), so go out on a high note and hit the road for Guelph, Canada’s fastest-growing city, and home to a large community of authors and illustrators. We'll be gathering at The Bookshelf, a longtime indie bookstore and community hub. Join in for a studio tour before connecting over dinner and drinks with the terrific creators from the area--or you can just come at 7:00 for the meeting. 

RSVP at Eventbrite: Whether you'll be coming from the GTA or from the Guelph area, please register at Eventbrite to get a free entry ticket. We need to let the restaurant and the organizers know how many people are coming. (We'll also send info on carpools, driving, and parking to everyone who has RSVPed.)

CAR POOLS: Car pools will be arranged to and from Guelph, so please RSVP so we can send you the details. (Do it early and you might even get to call shotgun first!) 


4:00–5:00 Tour of Werner Zimmermann’s studio (which is near The Bookshelf).

5:00–6:00 The Bookshelf for drinks or book browsing.

6:00–7:00 Dinner at The Bookshelf’s restaurant (upstairs). Everyone orders their own meal off the menu.  

7:00–8:30 Panel discussion (at the restaurant) over dessert and coffee.  Potential theme for panelists “What no one tells you about being a children’s/YA author or illustrator” with Guelph-area authors and illustrators:  Erin Bow, Kathy Stinson, Kira Vermond, Eric Walters, Werner Zimmermann.
