A Big Book Bash Thank You!

by jeremylukehill

We had a great time at the Book Bash Festival on Sunday! We celebrated books by 42 local authors, and we’re please so many of you came to join us.

Friends of Vocamus Press wants to thank everyone who helped make Book Bash Festival 2016 a success –

Anna Bowen, who jumped in to be our event host only a few weeks ago, but who did a great job running the program and chatting up the authors.

Madison Galloway, who sang us some great tunes and made sure the event was lively.

Andrew Bellous, who ran the sound system and made sure people could be heard.

Webcom, who provided finger food for everyone.

Our wonderful volunteers, Candace de Taeye, Sarah Demary, Kathryn Edgecomb, Kathleen James, Grace Ma, Valerie Senyk, Bieke Stengos, Tim Tencher, Marian Thorpe, Ryan Toxopeus, Jordan Waverman (and my two kids, Marlon and Jayden), who did everything from handing out programs to serving food to selling books.

Our volunteer coordinators and board of directors, Mary Ann Burrows, Sheri Doyle, Heather Embree, Jeremy Luke Hill, Kathleen James, Aaron Robb, Marian Thorpe, and Ryan Toxopeus, who did the behind the scenes work that makes events like this possible.

And our fabulous sponsors and partners, Action Read, The Bookshelf, CareWell Health Group, the Guelph Public Library, Janus Books, Living Yoga and Health, Modern Castles Renovations, Moisan and Associates Chartered Accounts, the University of Guelph Library, who give us the resources to make the event a success.

Our gratitude to everyone. Let’s do it again next year!
