The M is for Moose Event: Great Success!

On Tuesday, September 17th, we celebrated Charles Pachter's fabulous new alphabet book M is for Moose at The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto.

The turnout for the pre-launch was outstanding. The room booked for the event was filled to capacity, and many of us had to wait outside before we had a chance to get books signed by the man of the hour.

Speaking of Charles, his performance during the on-stage interview with Betty Ann Jordan was a thing to see. He was at once charming, insightful, passionate, funny, and always earnest about his love for Canada. This is the Charles Pachter who created M is for Moose, and that was the Charles Pachter who was up on stage for everyone to see.

And now a brief mention of numbers: We're proud to announce that we sold well over 200 copies at the pre-launch, which is a record for all TINARS (This Is Not A Reading Series) events thus far. But the most important thing is that so many people came out last night, and are genuinely excited for the book.

Thanks to: Pages Books & Magazines, EYE Weekly, The Gladstone Hotel, Betty Ann Jordan, and every single person who came out to celebrate with us.
