A giant mythical dragon-horse and spider roam the streets of Ottawa this weekend. To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, the city of Ottawa organized an incredible event and experience like no other. The live performance is called: The Spirit of the Dragon-horse: The Stolen Wings. It was created by Francois Delaroziere, the Artisitic Director of La Machine, a French theatre production company.
Dear Book Lovers,
Whether you’re taken or single this Valentine’s Day, we will always have our books. Every time we turn their pages we’re taken to different worlds, exploring new places, falling in love with characters and cheering them on during their hardships and victories.
This February, Simon & Schuster Canada invites all book enthusiasts to their Books, Be Mine event from now until February 14. Connect with other readers and enjoy book recommendations, excerpts, quotes, and other bookish fun.
Join in on their event page: Books, Be Mine Facebook Event.
