A PQL love-in, and our very first contest winner!

Hi Quill Friends!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the launch of Kildare Dobbs’ Casanova in Venice on Tuesday! We had a full house and it was fantastic to see so many booklovers in one place!

We’ve been happy to see some Porcupine’s Quill love all over the internet recently, so I thought I’d do a bit of a PQL Love-in link roundup.

Andrew Steeves, of Gaspereau Press, presented George A. Walker’s Book of Hours at a smelt fry/gentleman’s salon that looked like a ton of fun!

Want to get to know the next Porcupette before she starts her reign in the fall? Stephanie posted a fantastic overview of our launch for The Essential Richard Outram!

Speaking of The Essential Richard Outram, the Bytown Bookshop seems excited to receive their copies!

Looking for something to do this weekend? Quillfriend Charlotte Ashley can’t wait for this year’s wayzgoose in Grimsby! It promises to be a fantastic time, so come one, come all! (You can find more information about the Grimsby’s Wayzgoose here.)

Spring is a thrilling time at the Quill and to carry on the excitement, I’m happy to announce the winner of our Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland contest! I was so excited to see so many of you entered!

Our lucky winner is Liz Davidson! Liz, please e-mail me your mailing address and your copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will be on its way!

Thanks everyone for playing along with me – I’m hoping we can have more contests through the summer, so keep checking back with Letters from the Porcupette to find out when you can win next!

Before I “porcupette-out” for the night, I’ve got a question for you! All this rainy weather has inspired some daydreams of summer reading in me. What types of books do you look forward to in the summer? (I can’t wait to get my hands on some graphic novels and deliciousness-stuffed cookbooks!)
