Join best-selling author Elise Gravel at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly for the launch of The Worst Book Ever, a truly wonderful but terrible new release featuring tired tropes, cliches, and enough spelling errors for a spelling error treasure hunt! We will be celebrating this book by serving veggie hot dogs for all, so please bring your families.

A prolific artist, she currently has over thirty children's books to her name, which have been translated into a dozen languages, including The Disgusting Critters series, and If Found…Please Return to Elise Gravel, her challenge to young artists to keep a sketchbook.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly recognizes that our events and bookstores are located on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. This has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. It is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here. We are grateful that creating and sharing stories has been a part of this land for thousands of years and we urge you to seek out a story that is different from your own.
