Authors for Indies Day 2017

The Beguiling
April 29, 2017
Toronto, ON

The Beguiling Books & Art is joining in for its first Authors for Indies Day on Saturday April 29th at the new shop location! Authors for Indies is an event where selected authors come hang out at independent book stores, and volunteer their time as store clerks, recommending great reads! We think The Beguiling is the first comics-focused bookstore to take part, and hopefully it’s something we’ll be able to do for years to come.

Participating authors:

Brian McLachlan, 11am-3pm: Brian is the author of the young-person-oriented Draw Out The Story: Ten Secrets to Creating Your Own Comics, and What Noise Do I Make?, a children’s picture book, both published by Owlkids. Brian has a wide range of taste in comics, and is just as happy suggesting great graphic novels for grownups as he is some of the best comics out there for younger readers.

Claudio Ghirardo, 3pm-4pm: A graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon 19& Graphic Art, Inc., Claudio Ghirardo contributed to small press zines before focusing on freelance illustration and then being a full time artist. He has his own monthly experimental webcomic, “UNTITLED” where he combines modern art with sequential storytelling. He publishes his own graphic novels/zines, and has contributed to numerous anthologies.
