Weekend Sale – Mexico Earthquake Fundraiser

Regular Beguiling customers already know how enthused we are about contributing the vintage comics that are on display in the extraordinary “Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters” exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

In the course of the show’s otherwise festive opening week, GDT has asked everyone to consider making a donation in support of earthquake relief in his native Mexico. (In September, the country was devastated by several powerful earthquakes.)

We already have a lot to be thankful about this Thanksgiving, and we’ll be showing our gratitude to GDT and the AGO for their ongoing support by running an in-store fundraiser. This Thanksgiving long weekend, The Beguiling will donate 100% of the sticker price of any one graphic novel purchased Sunday or Monday (Oct 8-9) to Ambulante, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s crowdfunding campaign, and to UNICEF’s relief efforts in Mexico.

That’s right: We’ll be donating the entire value of a (1) graphic novel of your choice purchased on either day to charity. If you’ve been eyeing a new read, now’s the time. Drop by on Sunday or Monday and join us in supporting Mexico earthquake relief!

Not in Toronto this weekend? Donate directly to the campaigns here:

The Beguiling will be open Thanksgiving Sunday from noon to 6pm and holiday Monday from 11am-7pm.

TERMS: Limit one book per customer. Must be a book published prior to September 15, 2017. In store only, on Sunday October 8 and Monday October 9, 2017.

Queen Street Book Launch
With author Emmanuelle Chateuneuf
Wednesday, October 11th, 2017, 6pm-8pm

Free to Attend!

Page & Panel is proud to host the launch of the new book QUEEN STREET from Emmanuelle Chateauneuf and Chapterhouse Press. Emmanuelle will be in store on the book’s release day, signing and sketching for fans! Hope to see you there!


Meet Aimee– an overworked junior partner at a prestigious law firm in Manila, Philippines. One storybook romance, four back-to-back flights, and nine years later, in the small of mind but big in spirit town, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, she now lives; still overworked. But as a lower class serial-full-timer and mother to her only child, Melodie– an intelligent and eccentric seven-year-old, whose big personality is only rivaled by her even bigger imagination. Join them and a cast of unlikely characters just as confused and lost, as they stumble blindly for twelve consecutive hours through the beautifully disastrous comedy of Life. Don’t miss this breakout semi-autobiographical slice of life tale from Emmanuelle Chateauneuf, depicting the modern world as seen through the eyes of a woman and a girl, navigating the meanings of family and purpose in the complexities of simply being alive.

Written and Illustrated by Emmanuelle Chateauneuf
96 pages, 6/8 | Black & White
