SNOW: Book Party!
& Toronto Comics Sale!

Saturday, October 25th, 7pm-9pm
At The Beguiling Books & Art
601 Markham Street

Hey friends! We’re happy to report that our good friend Ben Rivers has just produced a second edition of his graphic novel SNOW, set on the rapidly changing Queen St. West! SNOW has also been adapted as a feature film, and this will be a chance to preview the movie, meet Ben, and pick up a copy of the book, all before the film opens!

The event will now take place at The Beguiling, AFTER HOURS, and it will feature a special SALE: All in-print Toronto-themed comics and graphic novels (other than the new edition of SNOW) will be 20% off their standard retail price. That means if they take place in Toronto or are by Torontonians–they’re on sale! Sale runs from 7pm-9pm.
