It’s always a pleasure meeting other authors or author illustrators and for CANSCAIP’s Packaging Your Imagination, I usually do some hospitality driving and dining out to make our presenters’ time in Toronto and area just a little easier.
‘Course with the pink cast, things were more tricky. I had to enlist family to retrieve authors from the airport. Here’s a photo of Marie Louise Gay talking to Burlington kids at Central Library. It was delightful to hear her talk about her books, drawing and writing, in French.
On the actual conference date, I brought my camera but with one hand, I just can’t handle, lottery tickets, money and photos too. Plus I confess, even with image stabilizer the authors are faster than my shutter.
People who came to the sessions seemed to enjoy themselves and buy lots of books, so sore arm and shoulder aside everything went well.
