On Saturday, November 12th, debut Halifax author Meghan Marentette wrapped up her visit to Toronto with a book signing at the Bay & Bloor Indigo. Meghan charmed the staff and was charmed by the shoppers—which you can read about in her latest Goodreads blog post. The Stowaways was pretty charming, too, as was illustrator Dean Griffiths‘ framed painting of main mouse Rory.
The Stowaways have been making a great impression all over Canada, getting reactions from reviewers such as: “I hesitate to compare it to The Wind in the Willows, but it is in the same league…Highly Recommended” (CM Magazine), and “Not since Stuart Little has the heart of a valiant mouse beat quite so fiercely as that of Rory Stowaway” (National Reading Campaign). Canadian Family Magazine selected it as a “Wish List-Worthy Book” in their November, 2013 issue.
Home again in Halifax, Meghan will be appearing on Global Television on Thursday, November 14th at 8:15 am Atlantic time. This appearance comes just before her book launch at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia on Sunday, November 17th. As their name suggests, the Stowaways are going places!
