My Bill Everett Book Launch starring Wendy Everett on Sat Sep 25 in Toronto!

On Saturday September 25, 2010, a book launch party for my new Bill Everett book will take place in Toronto, Canada (Everett being the creator/artist of the Marvel Comics' character, the Sub-Mariner, and co-creator/artist of Daredevil). The launch party will be hosted by the world-renowned book store, The Beguiling, and doors will open at 4pm. This is taking place at Innis College Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave, just barely off St. George St, just south of Bloor St (the Hall is part of the University of Toronto).

My book hasn't hit stores yet, so this will be an opportunity to be one of the first to get a copy. And we have two special treats for those who attend. At 4:30pm, proceedings will begin with a presentation by me on Everett's work and career, but the real treat is that I will be joined during the presentation by our very special guest, Wendy Everett, who is Bill Everett's daughter and first-born child. She's making a special trip up here to Toronto for the launch of the book and this is a unique opportunity to hear her share stories about her Dad, the man, the father and the artist. Wendy is incredibly articulate and exceptionally versed in the details of her father's life and career.

The second treat is that anyone who buys a copy of my book at the launch party will receive a very limited bookplate signed by myself and Wendy Everett.

A Facebook Event page has been set up with all the details. What's also unique about Sat Sep 25 is that, in the same location, our launch party is being followed up by a Louis Trondheim event, so it's really a two-for-one special when you come out that night. Hope to see you all there!
