Flickr photo roundup: Book Camp, Paul Watson, and Other Goose

Here’s a quick roundup of some recent event photos posted in the Q&Q Flickr pool:

Photographer Fleur-Ange Lamothe posted a couple of images from Brantford Book Camp 2007. It was a three-day event in mid-August that brought together young would-be authors and top children’s writers and illustrators. Here, author Sylvia McNicoll reads to the assembled group.

Above, war photographer and journalist Paul Watson signs books at an event at the Library and Archives in Ottawa on August 22, 2007. Watson also spoke at length about his experiences in South Africa, Rwanda, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The Ottawa International Writers Festival has kindly posted over an hour’s worth of audio files of the whole evening here.

Pages Books & Magazines and Groundwood Books hosted “Calypso Night!” in honour of Barbara Wyn Klunder’s new book Other Goose: Recycled Rhymes for Our Fragile Times. The event took place at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel on August 30 and included a calypso reggae band and a DJ.
