A week before our official launch, Monsterology was greeted warmly at Calgary Banff WordFest 2005. Arthur's reading of the book went very well with upwards of 400 school kids rolling in the aisles. The entire event was memorable and it was great meeting so many gifted writers.
Lots of thank-you's to hand out:
Anne Green for, well, everything;
Ian Samuels for great care and attention;
Kim Mayberry for the dance;
Amanda Peters for the hockey talk;
Pages on Kensington for the lovely bags;
McNally Robinson just because;
Lorna Crozier for saying what we were all thinking;
Sheree, Meg, Lorna, Michael, Tim, Eric and Simon for being nice to the artist;
Baba for the rap.
Barb and Malika, I hope you've found your respective Mitches.
The cover artwork for Monsterology was voted "Best Black and White" at this year's show. This was the first time the original artwork was seen by the general public and everyone seemed to like it.
