SAT 26th SEPT : A SPECIAL BOOK LAUNCH OF 'MAE AND THE MOON' by JAMI GIGOT
Saturday, September 26th between 3-5pm. Admission is totally free and the cafe will be open.
Jami, a local Vancouver children's book author and illustrator, will be reading her new picture book 'Mae and the Moon' at Circus and we welcome you and your family to come along... This is a free event where Jami will do the book reading, a small presentation and a Q & A session. There will also be an arts and crafts table with moon themed fun for the kids as well.
Mae and the Moon is aimed at children between 2-6 years of age so we do recommend that age range for this event as they would get the most out of it... Its free but please register below if you'd like to come along:
'Jami has always loved a good story. As a child she would secretly read by moonlight well past her bedtime. As she got older, she developed a passionate interest in the relationship between story and pictures, and moved from her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin to Vancouver, BC where she studied digital animation at Vancouver Film School. She has worked as a digital artist on several films including Pan, Avatar, and Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Driven by her wild imagination and inspired by her children and memories of childhood, she is now honing her illustration skills, and putting pen to paper to create her own picture books. After living in Madison, Los Angeles and London, she has returned to Vancouver where she currently lives with her husband and two children, both of whom happen to be incredible moon spotters.' www.jamigigot.com
