Long Tale – Opening Night

The opening reception for Long Tale was on Friday, March 1st. It was my first time in ATB's ArtVault Space and was such a great night, despite it being incredibly cold in Calgary.

I attended the event with one of my best friends and we had a wonderful time! There was delicious food and drinks, lots of people I knew, and so many beautifully illustrated books! It was actually really cool to see what the other participants chose to include in the show. I was particularly thrilled to see my book, I Didn't Stand Up, displayed with Jillian Tamaki's Governor General winning They Say Blue.

The show is up until the end of May and is worth checking out if you find yourself in the area. It's open from Monday to Friday from 8am until 4:30 at the ATB on Stephen Ave: 102 8th Avenue SW (Calgary, AB).

This is my friend, the incredibly talented and inspiring, Karen Klassen. Her illustrated edition of Breakfast At Tiffany's is part of the show.
