Sharon Kirsch launches new book at Ben McNally in Toronto

What Species of Creatures is Toronto writer/editor?s first

2008.12.04 — Sharon Kirsch launched her first book, What Species of Creatures: Animal Relations From the New World, on December 4 at Ben McNally Books in Toronto.

About 40 people descended upon Bens handsomely appointed bookshop in the heart of Torontos financial district for the cozy affair.

What Species of Creatures draws on accounts and drawings of animals encountered by early European settlers to these shores. "Seldom has scholarship been served up with such delectable charm and saucy wit," says novelist Sylvia Fraser, present at the launch.
