JULY 27: COMIC SHOP LADIES NIGHT AT THE BEGUILING!

Come join us for some summer fun at The Beguiling! Bring your friends for a warm-but-chill evening of comics, coloring, door prizes, snacks, drinks, and a room full of your comics-loving peers.

Time: Saturday, July 27, 2019, 7pm – 10pm
Location: The Beguiling Books & Art
319 College St., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5T1S2
(On College Between Spadina & Augusta)
Cost: FREE!

Comic Shop Ladies Night is back with another summer event! This is a ladies only event* where you can embrace your geeky side, discover new comics, share your opinions on movies, TV shows and video games, and cozy in from the cold with some comics! So put on your favorite Geek Tie attire (whether it’s a floofy dress or your favorite jeans) and come spend the evening with other nerdy ladies in a casual environment, surrounded by comics and merch.

For our July event, we will be returning to The Beguiling and every hour we’ll also be giving away amazing door prizes, but you have to be there to win, so be there is what we’re saying! We’ve got comics, games, a nerdy photo booth, and of course our popular table for the best colouring book action in town, so bring your pencils and imagination.

We’re trying something a little different with our Muskoka beer sponsorship this time — instead of an in-store tasting, we’ll be doing giveaways!

Don’t forget to invite your friends and RSVP to get yourself on the guest list and to get your name entered for the door prizes.

*This event is inclusive to all women, including those that identify as cisgender, transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary. Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting our intentions to build this event as a safe(r) space! We couldn’t do it without you. ♥

Accessibility: This location is accessible, but we regret that the washrooms are not.

JULY 4: OLD GROWTH PRESS LAUNCH EVENT!

OLD GROWTH PRESS PRESENTS…

Our second summer launch! Join us at the Beguiling as we present to you the work of Misbah Ahmed (Five Minutes in Karachi), Natalie Mark 麥月明 (From Yesterday) and Riley J. Piñeros (What They Don’t Know).

We will be hosting a zine-making workshop led by Rabeea Syed (https://rabeeasyed.com/) before the launch begins. This workshop is FREE of charge and all materials will be provided. Feel free to bring in a current project or make something brand new!

All three books as well as our artists’ other work will be available for sale (both cash and credit accepted). We will also be having a raffle to win all three of the publications, so arrive early to be sure you get a ticket!

More details to come! Stay tuned.

Old Growth Press acknowledges that it is based in Tkaronto, the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. Tkaronto and the surrounding area is still home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. By acknowledging the past, present, and future Indigenous persons living on this land, we aim to aid in the continued effort of decolonization across this land known as Canada.

Location:
The Beguiling
319 College Street
Toronto, ON
M5T 1S2
