VCLR ~ Shaun Tan Event

This past weekend was the Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable illustrator breakfast with Shaun Tan.

Shaun’s presentation was fantastic and funny and inspiring and we could have listened to him for the rest of the day.

I braved the book signing lineup and got my whole Tan collection signed (beautifully), including the two new ones I bought at the event. I’ve ‘read’ The Arrival cover to cover but I’m savouring tales from outer suburbia.

These are beautiful books. The design is lovely, the paper is lovely, the illustrations are lovely and poignant and the writing is delightfully weird.

    It’s wonderful! I cried in the bus reading it on the way home from the signing.
