We had sunny skies and cool breezes Sunday in Victoria Park for Kitchener’s Word on the Street. It was a fantastic day, with many people stopping by the booth to chat and ask about the press, buy a book, take a catalogue, or just browse through our titles. Some ask why we don’t have a table at Toronto’s much larger fair, and I was reminded once again yesterday how much I enjoy the rare opportunity to show off to our local community. It’s very much a family affair; my kids come with me and help set up and tear down the booth. In between they wander through the fair, only returning for money for food and books, the two essentials of the day. The size and location gives me that comfort, and judging from the amount of families and small children I saw yesterday I imagine it’s the same for many.
If you dropped by yesterday I thank you, and if you didn’t get a chance, well, keep it in mind for next year. In the mean time, stay tuned this week for posts on our newest releases. October and November are chock full of titles you won’t want to miss.
