Details about the event were posted on the event's Facebook page:Both Paul Harbridge and Matt James will be on hand to speak briefly about the book and sign copies. Books will be sold on site by the incredible Another Story Bookshop (315 Roncesvalles Avenue). Following the signing The Très Bien Ensemble (http://thetresbienensemble.com/), featuring Matt James on guitar and vocals, will perform a short set.

From Penguin Random House Canada website at http://penguinrandomhouse.ca/books/251515/when-moon-comes#9781101917770:

In this atmospheric story, a group of kids play hockey on a frozen lake by moonlight. At once nostalgic and timely, this is a gorgeous book that will speak to readers young and old.

The beaver flood has finally frozen--perfect ice, without a bump or a ripple. For the kids in town, it's Christmas in November. They wait, impatiently, for the right moment. 

Finally, it arrives: the full moon. 

They huff and puff through logging trails, farms, back roads and tamarack swamps, the powdery snow soaking pant legs and boots, till they see it--their perfect ice, waiting. 

And the game is on.
