Storytime with Jo Ellen Bogart

This past Saturday, Jo Ellen Bogart came to Toronto for a reading at McNally Robinson Booksellers. I found her at the front door pointing to her event poster with delight. She walked in and was jaw-dropping amazed at how beautiful everything was.

Happily, we made our way to the second floor’s event space where tables and chairs were being set up for Jo Ellen’s reading. Aside from reading Big and Small, Room for All, Jo Ellen also made a presentation on her laptop. Look how innovative she is! I have to say, I learned a few things during her reading too!

Following her reading, Jo Ellen Bogart signed books and posters. If you weren’t able to make it to the event, Jo Ellen did sign a few copies of Big and Small, Room for All that will be available at McNally Robinson on a first come, first serve basis.

After the reading, I decided to have lunch at Prairie Ink, the restaurant and bakery in McNally Robinson. It was such a beautiful day to sit on the patio, listen to all the happy book chatter, and have a cupcake.

Thank you to Nicola, Carla, and to the wonderful staff at McNally Robinson!
