"Let's make some soup 'cause the weather is turning cold."
Join singer/songwriter Hawksley Workman and music educators Rainbow Songs for the launch of Hawksley's first book for children. Almost A Full Moon adapts one of Hawksley's songs into a heartwarming tale of a warm welcome on a cold night, with evocative illustrations by Jensine Eckwall.
Brunch will be available for purchase starting at 11AM. Rainbow Songs will lead a singalong at 12:30PM, and Hawksley will play at 1:30PM. This will be followed by a book signing.
Co-presented by Pages Unbound and Another Story Bookshop. (PWYC proceeds go towards venue costs and presenters' expenses.)
The Gladstone Hotel is fully accessible for wheelchair & stroller.
Hawksley Workman is not afraid to be strange. After over a decade in the business, this hyper-prolific, perpetually restless creative force continues to push the boundaries of experience and the heights of his successes well outside the comfort zone. In fact, Hawksley Workman's comfort zone is probably not all that comforting to most: it's left of left field and nowhere near the beaten path. Call him a lone wolf, an odd duck or a strange bird; just don't call him ordinary.
Hawksley's touring career has seen him play nearly a thousand shows in over 15 countries. He's headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris, as well as opening for heroes Morrissey, David Bowie, and The Cure. As an actor Workman has appeared in films such as Score, Hockey a Musical (he also wrote a portion of the music), Youkali Hotel, and Stormy Weather. Beyond his own solo work, Hawksley has written songs for many feted artists including legends Johnny Hallyday and Jane Birkin. www.hawksleyworkman.com
The Rainbow Songs approach to teaching and learning comes from the belief that there is interconnectedness between music, movement and language that support each other through the learning process. www.rainbowsongs.com
