Hi everyone! Happy Friday. I hope that you are all doing well. I thought I'd share an event recap of a book launch I recently attended. I was lucky enough to be invited to Colin Campbell's "Free Days with George" Book launch on Wednesday night at Ben McNally Books in Toronto. If you have been reading my blog, you'll know that I LOVED this book so much. You can check out my full review, author Q&A with Colin AND a Giveaway here!
I've been to this bookstore twice now for book launches and I am just blown away by how beautiful it is inside! I think it is a lovely place for book events and I love going and exploring all the titles that they have.
Colin gave a beautiful speech about the book and he even took the time to thank his brother, who is a principal who found time to fly down for the launch. There were some tears definitely in the audience because his speech was just so sweet. He also some kind words to say about his editor and of course, the man of the hour: George!
I attended the event with my best friend and fellow book blogger, Nikki from NikkitheKnack (she also reviewed the book recently and you can read her awesome review here). We got to speak to Colin for a bit and he was incredibly sweet and nice and showed so much gratitude for book bloggers which was awesome. There was also a cake for the book which was awesome, but Nikki and I spent most of the evening following George around who is an absolute sweetie.

It was such a fun evening and George is seriously the coolest dog ever. Colin had asked us when he was signing our books what we thought of George and it honestly felt like the epilogue or last chapter of the book seeing him in person and just seeing his growth. There is so much love that you can see from Colin and George for each other and it really is heartwarming to see how much it has shaped their lives. It was beautiful to finally meet the both of them and see how they are together. I truly hope that I'll be able to give George a massive hug again in the near future! :D
Congratulations again, Colin and George, on a wonderful read.
