March 11th, 2017-Nancy Drew Anthology: Book Launch (I’m the Emcee).
Join us for an afternoon of readings and presentations inspired by the world’s most famous female sleuth, NANCY DREW. Emceed by LIZ GRUENING-HAY, a Toronto Lindy Hopper and social media coordinator (and a Nancy Drew fan from way back) who blogs about the past on her site The Vintage Inn.
Readings from THE NANCY DREW ANTHOLOGY (Silver Birch Press, 2016), by Toronto writer LEE PARPART, Ottawa poet A. GARNETT WEISS, and Pennsylvania novelist NANCY MCCABE. Guest authors ANGELA MISRI (THE PORTIA ADAMS ADVENTURES) and MELANIE J. FISHBANE (MAUD), will discuss how Nancy Drew figured in their formation as storytellers focused on strong female characters.
NANCY DREW will even make an appearance, thanks to drama students from Rosedale and Wexford Collegiate performing arts high schools. Copies of the NANCY DREW ANTHOLOGY (Silver Birch Press, 2016) will be raffled off for free, and a limited number of copies of the book will be available for purchase ($12, cash only please).
All ages welcome! (Great March Break staycation kickoff for big readers of YA, combined with literary fiction and poetry for the adult crowd). No cover charge…all we ask is that you come out and support The Supermarket, which maintains reasonable rental fees for local arts groups, with the purchase of a snack or a beverage. We look forward to spending the afternoon with you!
