For all you who didn’t know, Brides in Black launched this past Monday evening and the outcome was more than “ok”. Around 300 people showed up to The Caboto club to hear Mary Ann and Terry Ann Carter read samples from their newest books (Terry Ann’s being Day Moon Rising)! What a turn-out!
Both groups of students were able to share their experiences with the audience and mingle with fellow classmates and friends of the authors (over mini cheesecake and Tim Horton’s coffee no less), as Mary Ann and Terry Ann assembly-line signed their books.
There was a jazz ensemble, a cash bar (whose cocktail tables, looked like they had been through a war, the shrapnel being cocktail napkins and empty cups) and a slew of laughter filtering in and out of the hallways of Caboto.
And now that this is done, now that the book has been born and fed and nourished and propped on its feet, this will be my last posting. It’s been great having my own literary blog-garden to tend to and watch grow. I hope you all enjoyed these posts, both from students and Mary Ann herself and I urge you:
Get your own copy of Brides in Black! You won’t be sorry you did!
You can purchase them right now at the University book store but they’ll also be for sale at Chapters in the coming weeks.
All the best, Emily.
