Small Print TO's TOTSAPALOOZA 8
Small Print Toronto proudly announces its 8th Annual TOTSAPALOOZA Festival of picture books, indie bands and D.I.Y. crafts. Book lovers aged 2-8 can explore this year’s theme, “draw me a story,” on all three floors of Toronto’s historic Revival nightclub.
Don’t miss this year’s all-star literary line-up:
- Neil Pasricha, author of the international bestseller The Book of Awesome and, more recently, the picture book Awesome Is Everywhere.
- Author Heather Mattick’s much-lauded Finding Winnie: The True Story of Winnie-the-Pooh.
- Governor General award-winning artist Cybẻle Young’s presentation of her stunning new book Some Things I’ve Lost, featuring her original paper art.
- A special sneak preview of celebrated creator-CBC Broadcaster Kevin Sylvester’s latest picture book Super Duper Monster Viewer, which comes out in April, 2016.
Acclaimed Craft Artisan Kalpna Patel (perhaps best known for her traffic-stopping window displays at TYPE Books on Queen St West) will design D.I.Y. crafts for kids inspired by the books in this year’s line-up.
Kids can groove to performances by indie-roots rock trio Bellwoods Trinity. Choreographer Ann-Marie Williams of Movement Lab will show us how to ‘Dance A `Story.’ And DJ Matt Blackett of Spacing Magazine will keep the party hopping.
Books will be available for purchase at the event.
