One of Québec City’s precious independent libraries, Librairie Morency could easily be mistaken for a treasure chest full of wonders at first glance; priding itself on its audacity, it goes above and beyond to make every aspect of literature shine. “Ordinary” simply doesn’t exist in their dictionary.
It should then come as no surprise that, despite being the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan is for a second year in a row getting the spotlight this Saturday in a festival covering many of the aspects that make its culture so captivating! Many amazing guests will be on site, some of which have yet to give our hearts back (honestly, it’s fine if they keep them; they deserve them). You may thus find Martin Savard performing Rakugo at 1pm and 2pm, Nunumi signing copies of her comic, A Ticket to Nowhere, and Valérie Harvey presenting her books and talking about her experience in Kyōto.
Cosplayers, don’t fret! Librairie Morency will be hosting a costume contest on the theme of Japan with none other than Nienna Surion, one of our two canadian representatives for WCS 2020! Register now for the contest by sending the library a PM on their Facebook page, by calling them, or by registering on-site! Our scouts have also heard rumors of prizes for the contest~
See you this Saturday on Limoilou’s 3rd avenue! Oh, and one more thing: it’s free!
