I was invited by HCC Frenzy to the launch party for The Field Guide to the North American Teenager this week. It was at a Wanda’s Pie in the Sky in Kensington Market in Toronto. The night started out great when I got the closest parking spot to the store! I had to take a picture of it!
This is my piece of apple pie. The picture doesn’t look too good… but it tasted great! It had a sweet crumble on top, though the apples were quite tart.
The author, Ben Philippe, spoke a little about his book but first he introduced the pie. He pointed out the Key Lime pie, which featured in the story and is his favourite kind.
After the pie, we were able to get our books signed! Ben asked if we were Team Maddie or Team Aarti when we spoke to him. Maddie and Aarti are the two girls who the main character, Norris, likes and spends time with in the book. I’m Team Maddie.
Here’s my signed copy of the book!
This was a super fun event! Thank you so much to HCC Frenzy and Ben Philippe for the fun night!
