Great fun last night at the North Vancouver Public Library, where I did the first ever guerilla pj reading of a few bedtime stories. The crowd comported themselves with great decorum during the anti-striptease element of the program [hardly any yelling or hooting — yeah!] and seemed to enjoy the readings, too.
Big thanks to Heidi Schiller, head librarian for organizing the event, and to NSWA President Cathy Scrimshaw for sponsoring and for giving me what I think is the best introduction I have ever received. Thanks also to the Friends of the Library for bringing goodies [including wine!] for all to enjoy.
This series continues next month with the wonderful poet Bernice Lever in the reader’s chair. I’ll be there — hope to see you, too!
As for my pyjamas — keep an eye open. You never know where the Guerilla Bedtime Story event will turn up next!
