On Monday 16 July we hosted Giles Blunt, creator of the Cardinal mystery series, at Trestle Brewing Company. The evening was a great success.

The answer to the question WHAT CAN BE BETTER THAN BOOKS AND BEER? is BOOKS, BEER AND BIRDS!!

On Monday 13 August we host Steve Burrows, author of the Birder Murder Mystery Series - to an audience of only 70 readers keen to try Trestle Brewing Company's range of beer! Tickets are selling quickly - don't wait to buy your tickets!

JESSICA BROMLEY BARTRAM AT PARRY SOUND BOOKS SATURDAY 28 JULY 2018

Jessica Bromley Bartram has grown up summering on an island south of Parry Sound. She has recently illustrated the picture book charles.

The author, S. E. Hume, may have told the story based on his memories of taking care of an injured crow when he was growing up on a farm, but with Jessica Bromley Bartram’s glorious illustrations it could just as easily be a Georgian Bay island.

The prestigious Kirkus Review states “brought to lush life by Bartram’s enchanting, accurate illustrations (baby crows do have blue eyes), which are done in a rich, nature-hued palette and feature simple shapes decorated with patterns found in nature—such as the spores on fern fronds. The shapes and patterns against the white space of the page thoughtfully integrate the story’s theme by bringing attention to nature’s inherent order and harmony.”

Jessica has fond memories of Parry Sound Books as a frequent stop to stock up on books for summer reading since she was a young child.

She is delighted to return as a book-creator to sign copies of charles on Saturday 28 July, from 12:30 to 2:30.
