Good Pirate’s Arr-some Launch Event

Posted on June 10th, 2016 by pajamapress

Last Sunday Pirate Life Toronto on Centre Island hosted a launch event for Good Pirate. Kari-Lynn Winters and all her mateys crowded onto a real-life pirate ship to partake in activities, tattoos, Kari-Lynn’s readings of both Pirate books, and a performance by the scurviest pirates on the island. Even passing landlubbers enjoyed themselves, and no one had to walk the plank or get wet!

On Sunday November 17th it was standing room only as 100 reading fans descended on the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia in Halifax to celebrate with Meghan Marentette as she and fellow author Jill MacLean launched their new books.

The Stowaways, Meghan’s debut novel about a family of adventurous mice, has been causing excitement since its release in October. It has been featured in Canadian Family Magazine, on Global Television, and in the Fall 2013 Books for Everybody catalogue. Meghan Marentette has been welcomed enthusiastically by fans at the Pajama Press Fall Book Launch and Art Show, at a special Meet-and-Greet at the flagship Indigo store in downtown Toronto, and—of course—at her Halifax book launch.
