Thank you to everyone who joined us at the launch party for Gabby on Jan. 27.
It was held at the ITA Cafe on Bloor St., a perfect venue because the cafe funds free literacy activities for kids.
Jan Dolby and I did a reading (with the help of my son, who posted the fabric letters). The kids who attended made plasticine and crayon Gabbies, which were fantastic. We’ll post pictures in our Kids’ Art Gallery soon.
The piece de resistance was a cake made by my editor, Christie Harkin, with gorgeous
Gabby cake toppers by dimensional media artist Suzanne del Rizzo. And the cake was delicious, too!
Thanks to everyone who attended the launch!
PS: Here’s a terrific article about the launch and ITA, written by book reviewer Kerry Clare.
