ON – Queen Street Book Launch

Author Emmanuelle Chateauneuf appears at Page & Panel on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm to sign QUEEN STREET!

ABOUT QUEEN STREET VOLUME ONE:

Meet Aimee– an overworked junior partner at a prestigious law firm in Manila, Philippines. One storybook romance, four back-to-back flights, and nine years later, in the small of mind but big in spirit town, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, she now lives; still overworked. But as a lower class serial-full-timer and mother to her only child, Melodie– an intelligent and eccentric seven-year-old, whose big personality is only rivaled by her even bigger imagination. Join them and a cast of unlikely characters just as confused and lost, as they stumble blindly for twelve consecutive hours through the beautifully disastrous comedy of Life. Don’t miss this breakout semi-autobiographical slice of life tale from Emmanuelle Chateauneuf, depicting the modern world as seen through the eyes of a woman and a girl, navigating the meanings of family and purpose in the complexities of simply being alive.

MB – Mighty Jack and the Goblin King Signing

Ben Hatke appears in conversation with Justin Currie at McNally Robinson Booksellers on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7:00 PM to present his newest middle grade book in the Mighty Jack graphic novel series, Mighty Jack and the Goblin King.

Like a bolt from the blue, Jack’s little sister Maddy is gone—carried into another realm by an ogre. When Jack follows Maddy’s captor through the portal, he is ready for anything . . . except what he finds waiting for him in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of his magic plants may not be enough to get him back to earth alive. But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novels Little Robot and Mighty Jack. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.

Justin Currie is an internationally-recognized artist who has worked with Blizzard, Warhammer, Nickelodeon, Disney, and is a regular guest of comic conventions across Canada and the United States. His first creator-owned project, Cassie and Tonk, won the Manitoba Book Award for graphic novels.
