Nan Forler launched her picture book Bird Child (Tundra Books) on Saturday Sept. 19 at the The Great Hall in Conrad Grebel University College in Kitchener-Waterloo. Though the birds in the book (illustrated by Francois Thisdale) are more symbolic than literal, the event was a full on birdztravaganza, with bird-shaped cookies, bird crafts, and songs about birds playing in the background.
Some of the planned activities. (Is it just us, or do #2 and #4 seem a little off-theme?)
The signing line.
Peter Carver and Kathy Stinson get Nan Forler to sign their copies.
Forler, flowers, and frustrated-looking kid.
