PFB Events, October/November 2017: Jen Agg; Lynn Johnston

On Monday, October 23rd, Toronto's Jen Agg, author of I Hear She's A Real Bitch (Random House, 2017) and owner of Toronto's The Black Hoof, Grey Gardens, & etc., will be in house at 7pm to talk (for a while), answer questions & argue (for probably longer), drink wine (continuously), & maybe even sign some books.  I've read her book, & Agg is a business owner after my own heart -- smart, funny, possessed of real service standards, & ferociously opinionated.  If you'd like a seat, I recommend arriving c. 630pm for a 7pm start.  Both booze & books will be available in abundance.

On Thursday. November 9th, Lynn Johnston, creator of "For Better or For Worse," and one of the world's best living newspaper-strip cartoonists, will make a rare appearance at Main Street from 7-9pm, in conversation with Kurtis Findlay, her editor on IDW Books' new complete edition of For Better or For Worse.  This event will definitely be over capacity and we may have to turn people away if we max out the load limit on the floor!  Facebook event here, though please note that signing up on Facebook does not guarantee a seat; seating is strictly first-come, first-served, & showing up at 6pm for the 7pm start might not be a bad idea.  Free admission; books will be available for purchase.
