The Never Weres Book Launch Photos

The book launch was a raging success. Thanks to This Is Not A Reading Series' Marc Glassman for hosting and sponsoring the event. The Annick Press crew of Brigitte Waisberg and Joanna Karaplis and the TINARS crew of Charlie Huisken, Anna Withrow, Judy Wolfe, and Jesse Huisken promoted and organized an amazing event! Grateful thanks to all! And thank you to the ever supportive Gladstone Hotel as the venue for the party.

Artists/ Zinesters/Cartoonists Patrick Kyle and Mark Connery narrated Jesse's and Loly's parts during the reading of the first chapter.
Here I am with the super group of my partner The Bon's Craig Daniels, Ain't the Rosedale Library's Charlie Huisken and illustrator/cartoonist Maurice Vellekoop.

Me and my best supporter!
