Book Launch(es) for In the Key of Dale

[ID: Event info text on the left-half of the image and a skewed mockup image of the book’s front cover on the right-half, all overlaying a pale red background with lighter coloured brush strokes texture. Text alternates between a bold red and a dark indigo, which match the colours of the book, and essentially reads, “Words Worth Books presents _In the Key of Dale_ a book launch and reading with Benjamin Lefebvre. Saturday, October 15, 2:00 PM ET, Trillium Lutheran Church, 22 Willow St, Waterloo, ON. Join us to celebrate the release of Benjamin Lefebvre’s pitch-perfect YA novel, _In the Key of Dale_! Books available for purchase.” Surrounding the text are three illustrated musical note graphics, and underneath are the logos for Words Worth Books and Arsenal Pulp Press, along with the URL “”. On the book mockup is a pale red and white circular sticker-like graphic that reads “FREE EVENT”. In the top-right is a review blurb excerpt that reads, “By turns snarkily funny and wrenchingly poignant, Benjamin Lefebvre’s debut novel is a pitch-perfect paean to the geeks, loners and musical prodigies you knew—or were—in high school. —C.E. GATCHALIAN, author of _Double Melancholy: Art, Beauty, and the Making of a Brown Queer Man_”. Book cover ID: Three graphic red piano keys take up the full width and height of the cover. The black keys and spaces between the red keys are dark purple. The words “In the Key of” are stacked on the middle key. The word "Dale" is in large handwritten letters across the full width of the book. The author's name is in dark purple below the title, stacked in the middle key. /end ID] (Alt text provided by Arsenal Pulp Press)

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, there will be two launches for In the Key of Dale this weekend that are open to the public. An in-person event will be held on Saturday, October 15, at 2:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall at Trillium Church (22 Willow St. in Waterloo, Ontario), and a virtual event will be held on Sunday, October 16, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) over Zoom. (Meeting ID: 840 7192 8925. Passcode: 117790.) These events are free, open to the public, and suitable to people of all ages.

Both events will consist of me reading short excerpts the book, offering a behind-the-scenes look at my writing process, and answering questions from the audience. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Saturday event from Words Worth Books in uptown Waterloo.
