Toronto Book Launch for WHERE ARE MY BOOKS? and an interview with Anjula Gogia of Another Story Bookshop

I'm delighted to announce that the Toronto book launch for WHERE ARE MY BOOKS? will take place at Another Story Bookshop on Thursday, May 14th from 6-8 pm. Address: 315 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto ON M6R 2M6. Please do help me celebrate the launch of my first solo picture book! Please RSVP on Facebook or (if you're not on FB) post in the comments below.

Anjua Gogia was kind enough to answer a couple of questions for me about Another Story Bookshop.

Q. How did you become involved with Another Story?

Well, I am the former co-manager of the Toronto Women's Bookstore, from 1997-2006. Of course I knew about Sheila and Another Story Bookshop, and always loved the store. A few years ago I was looking for some part-time work, and I walked into Another Story and knew immediately I wanted to be a bookseller again! I now organize all the book launches and events.

Q. How did Another Story begin?

It began as a dream by the owner, Sheila Koffman, 30 years ago. An unrealistic dream. It started off as a bookstore for adults, and when we realized need for book for good books for children in the school system and the neighbourhood that section blossomed. We started off in the east end of the city and moved to the west end 8 years ago. We love both areas, and the Roncesvalles has embraced us wholeheartedly. Although it's been a difficult dream, it's also been a blast!
