AUTHORS MAUREEN MARKS-Mendonça AND BILLY ELM MEET IN TORONTO
Island Fiction authors, Maureen Marks-Mendonça (Legend of the Swan Children) and Billy Elm (Delroy in the Marog Kingdom) made the best of Billy Elm's recent visit to Toronto! This was the first time they would meet, and Maureen felt that it would be fitting to spend an afternoon at A Different Booklist Bookstore, where Macmillan's Island Fiction Series will soon be lining the shelves – assuming snags in the distribution system get ironed out!
The students were given links to the authors’ book trailers on YouTube beforehand, and so were very keen audiences. “That was cool,” said a Portage student of Maureen's trailer, which contains her own artwork. Alex Springfeather’s meeting with likable rogue, Rico Marquez, intrigued Portage students, while Amesbury students were eager to hear about Delroy's adventure and of Jamaica, where a few of them were born.
