Unfortunate news, folks. David Brin is unable to make it to Toronto this weekend. So we will NOT be hosting him on Saturday June 18th.

We’ll still have cookies, though.

Please join us here at the store at 7pm on Tuesday June 21st to celebrate both the start of summer and Guy Gavriel Kay‘s newest book Children Of Earth And Sky.

Guy has donated a SPECTACULAR prize: a gorgeous leatherbound edition of Children Of Earth And Sky, one of only 10 copies in existence. We’ll hold a draw for it after his reading; you have to be here to win (and, y’know, to enjoy the party and all).
