Blue Met Festival in Montreal

This past Wednesday and Thursday I was invited to present at the Blue Met Festival for Children 2012, in Montreal. My first time there, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I came away tired and strangely energized, wanting to do it all over again.
For the first one at the Montreal Children's Library, Richmond Branch, I was welcomed by the librarian, Carmen Mandrila and the wonderful Monique Polak who dropped by with a bunch of her journalism students. Here she is enroute to my prez with her students. Great students with some very insightful questions.
My second presentation was at the Westmount Public Library. The wonderful Wendy Wayling had invited a Grade 6 class from a nearby school and I have to say they were a fabulous bunch of kids who had me impressed from "good morning."
Here's me having a blast in Mon-real! Enjoy...

"There's No Frigate Like a Book To Bear us Leagues Away."My sentiments precisely!

A riveted audience. I can't tell you who had more fun :)
