Blue Heron Books has graciously agreed to carry the books of our four featured authors at our book fair this year. They will be offering book signing space after each reading and are available throughout the day to purchase from and answer any questions you may have about special orders, new work, and available services.
Blue Heron Books is located in the quaint and picturesque village of Uxbridge, ON. Voted best independent bookseller of 2012 and 2014 by the Canada Libris Award; Blue Heron Books, in addition to carrying both current and classic titles, leads book clubs, art classes, writing workshops and author visits. They are pet-friendly and welcome furry customers with water and treats.
The store supports and promotes up-and-coming authors with book launches and book signing events. Open seven days a week, it is a special place for families with children and teens of all ages who seek an unpretentious, old-fashioned locale where owner, Shelley Macbeth (how could she not be a contributor the the literary world?), is honoured to share her love of words with the public.
Of particular interest is their Series of Fortunate (literary) Events held once a month, featuring established authors, and accompanied by brunch or dessert, depending on the time of day. It is certainly worth the drive to Uxbridge in order to experience first-hand this gem of a bookstore, so be sure to visit their website and discover your next favourite author.
