What rock star had people at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario lined up two-deep, for blocks?
Robert Munsch, children’s literature rock star!
Robert Munsch did two shows today at the Living Arts Centre, and in-between he signed books and had his picture taken with star-struck youngsters (and their star-struck parents).
It was truly impressive. People waited an hour and a half in line, with impatient toddlers, no less, to meet one of the biggest stars of the kidlit world.
Thank you to Andreas Kyprianou at LAC for helping me to get these great shots.
Mr. Munsch is turning 65 this year, and he’s keeping up a pace that would shame a 20-year-old. Not only did he perform two shows today, but he signed hundreds and hundreds of books in-between and after the shows. Humble and proud of our fellow Canadian, we are. Humble and proud.
Here’s his website.
