Scholastic Canada Brunch with Montreal Book Bloggers and Author Cecil Castellucci

>>Tuesday, November 22, 2011

A couple weeks ago we were invited to have brunch with Nikole and Catherine from Scholastic Canada while they were in town for Salon du Livre. They also invited Canadian author Cecil Castellucci (The Plain Janes, First Day on Earth) to join us! It was one of the most fun things I've been able to participate in relating to books and blogging!

We got to talk about things like blogging, books and most importantly, Cecil's latest novel, First Day on Earth (review).  It's always fun when you get to hear how the author came to write a book and what their inspirations were. We also found out that Cecil has two upcoming projects: a book that alternates between prose and comic illustrations and also a science fiction duology (can't wait!). Her Plain Janes books will be going back into print as well, and I'm definitely going to grab copies!

A great surprise was that Nikole and Catherine had prepared personalized bags of Scholastic books for each of us!
Thank you!

I want to thank Nikole, Catherine, Scholastic Canada and Cecil Castellucci for having this great idea and also for taking the time to meet with us. It was a great experience and great to meet all of you! 

Event Announcement: if you live near Montreal and want a chance to meet Cecil Castellucci, she will be at Babar en Ville this Saturday!

  1. For me too this was one of the most fun things I've done as a book blogger! Have you seen the cover to The Year of the Beasts? I linked to it in my post. Thanks again for the book lend!
