Launch party: full details!!
Here's all the information on the book launch! I will (HOPEFULLY) see you this Monday night!
WHERE: The Beguiling (601 Markham Street in Toronto, in Mirvish Village, beside Honest Eds)
WHEN: Monday, July 29th, 7pm-10pm
WHAT: Launch party for To Be or Not To Be! OMG U GUYS
CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOK LAUNCHTo Be Or Not To Be VS. This Is How You Die!
The Kickstarter publishing sensation VS. the sequel to the #1 bestselling Machine of Death!
Which book launch will you choose? The release date of two very highly-anticipated new novels has almost arrived, and authors Ryan North, David Malki, and The Beguiling are going to celebrate! On Monday, July 29th, YOU are invited to attend the launches of these two books, to be held simultaneously next door to one another, in the CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOK LAUNCH event! AHHHHHH
You already know about the book To Be or Not To Be that I wrote, but This Is How You Die is the book that I edited, along with David "Wondermark" Malki and Matt Bennardo! It is a collection of short stories about a world where a machine exists that can tell you how, but not when, you will die. It is NUTTY AWESOME, if I do say so myself. In honour of the spirit of these fine books, we are holding simultaneous book launches where attendees will pit the books against each other to choose their favourite!! Both launches will take place at restaurant/bars next to The Beguiling, the event's host.
At the TO BE OR NOT TO BE launch:
- Meet author Ryan North and many of the illustrators featured in the book!
- Epic Shakespeare rap battle!
- Live choose-your-own-path reading of the book, featuring audiobook actor Matt Yantha!
- Original art exhibition feature art from the artists in the book!
- Get a copy of To Be or Not To Be! Get it signed!
At the THIS IS HOW YOU DIE launch:
- Meet author and editor David Malki and that Ryan guy too!
- Get your own, 100% accurate reading from the Machine of Death! No refunds. Also, it's free.
- Dramatic Reading!
- A Hilarious And Fun Game Which Is Like Pictionary But Uses Machine Of Death Prediction Cards Instead And Which We Cannot Call Pictionary For Legal Reasons
- Get a copy of This Is How You Die! Get it signed!
So there will be PRIZES and COMPETITION and RAP BATTLES and it's gonna be great. Two events at the same time, side by side, allowing you to move between them easily! NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG.
This Monday, 7pm, at The Beguiling in Toronto. You should come!
