The Elora Writers' Festival's First Graphic Novelist!

Join us for our 20th Anniversary on Sunday May 25th from 1-4 pm at Aboyne Hall in Centre Wellington as we welcome the Elora Writers' Festival's first graphic novelist & cartoonist, Scott Chantler.
     Scott Chantler is creator of the graphic novel,  Two Generals - a very personal story from WWII which was long-listed for CBC’s Canada Reads: True Stories, named one of Chapters-Indigo’s Best Books of 2010, and selected for Best American Comics 2012.  Another graphic novel set in the early days of the North American fur trade, Northwest Passage was nominated for Eisner, Harvey, Shuster, and Doug Wright Awards. His Three Thieves series continues to delight kids (and their parents) with each new installment.  The first book in the series, Tower of Treasure, won the Joe Shuster Award for Best Comic for Kids. The latest installment, The King's Dragon, was released just last month from Kids Can Press Ltd.    Scott also teaches Writing for Graphic Novels at Max the Mutt Animation School in Toronto.  
     We hope you can join us Sunday to listen to Scott and five other Canadian authors share their work in an intimate environment in one of the prettiest communities you'll find anywhere.  Tickets are only $20.00 and can be bought at the door or in advance at Roxanne's Reflections Book Store in Fergus.
