But I'm not just an author. I'm a book fan too! Luckily I was placed near the Main Stage and got to hear and watch some fantastic speeches from some very notable authors. See the photos below!
|On Friday, kids waited eagerly to see DAV PILKEY,|
Author of "Captain Underpants". Also present at the fair were JEFF KINNEY,
GORDON KORMAN, and RICHARD SCRIMGER, among many others.
|The actress MEG TILLY, spoke about her book "Behind the Scenes"|
and read her children's book later in an intimate venue. Lucky kids!
|One of my favourites, ANNE RICE spoke about her new book|
"Prince Lestat: The Vampire Chronicles"
|Vancouver-based sci-fi author WILLIAM GIBSON talked|
about his new book "The Peripheral".
|Coroner and crime-writer KATHY REICHS took the stage |
to discuss her latest book, "Bones Never Lie".
|MARGARET ATWOOD had a packed house for her talk. Sporting|
shark mittens, she was amusing, inspiring, and challenging.
|My new BFF, LEV GROSSMAN, bestselling author of "The Magician"|
and its sequels, was kind enough to sign my copy of "The Magician King",
and to plug "Weaverworld".
I hope to return to the Toronto Book Fair in 2016 with the third book of the Weaverworld Fantasy Series. I'm even thinking of creating a board game for "Weaverworld: Grimsnipe's Revenge" as another way of sharing the story. I'll keep you posted!
