We will continue publishing Issue 2 next week. Please scroll down for more information about that.
This evening, we have been given the opportunity to speak at Marian Engel Park. Every year, the office of Councillor Joe Mihevc sponsors a movie night in a park named after the dear subject of our graphic novel. This park is located near where Engel’s last novel (and our namesake) is set, Marchmount Rd. known also as Lunatic Villas. They will be screening Despicable Me for families after our presentation. Yes. Despicable Me. We will post notes and photos of the event here, as well as all the fun stuff we come up with for kids! If you’re free, consider dropping by! Here is all the info.
This event was originally planned to celebrate the birthday of Marian Engel, but the original date was rained out. Please enjoy what would have been a timely illustration of how we felt last month when we celebrated her birthday privately!
The delay in issue 2 has been brought to you by U of T summer classes. We will have new pages up next week, though! In the interim, check out an old story by writer David Emery about conquistadors and bears and all kinds of stuff that one can construe as Canadian: http://www3.carleton.ca/inwords/inwords52_DE.html
This one is by a close friend of Lunatic Villas who operates a wonderful online mag: www.thesteelchisel.ca. David, thank you!
‘Till next week!~~
