Canada 150 Celebration

Toronto Public Library: Albert Campbell Branch

Monday, June 26th, 2017 (2:00pm - 4:00pm)

Join us to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday with the Scarborough Scribblers at our Monday June 26, 2017 meeting from 2:00-4:00 PM.

What to expect: This is your chance to experience an authentic Scarborough Scribblers meeting, as described by Saul Riley Triaou in his introduction to Impromptu. There'll be writers prompts (Canadian-themed, of course), inspiration, and lots of laughter. We encourage you to wear red and white (a hat, scarf, or shirt will do). Canadian refreshments will be provided (could be be timbits, beaver tails and poutine... or just a bunch of red and white "stuff") but you're all really going for the prompts, eh?

Impromptu Book Launch

Toronto Public Library: Albert Campbell Branch

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 (2:00pm - 4:00pm)

Friends, Family, Fans (and random strangers): Come see how excited we are about the publication of our second anthology (hint: we're very, very excited!) and help us celebrate. There'll be music and we'll all read exerpts of our stories in our most dramatic voices (we've been practicing). Oh, and of course we'll be serving refreshments: appetizers, and non-alchoholic beverages like coffee, tea and pop (we'd rather toast with champagne but that's against Library Policy... yes, we checked).

Please let someone know if you'll be attending (by someone we mean one of the authors or the library). We'll be keeping a head count to make sure we have enough chairs and refreshments. Then again, not letting anyone know has its benefits (standing burns more calories, and dessert is bad for you... especially chocolate).

Signed copies of Impromptu and our 2016 anthology Library Reflections will be on sale.
