MacKay book launch Aug. 30 at The Spec­ta­tor

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Long­time Hamil­ton Spec­ta­tor ed­i­to­rial colum­nist Graeme MacKay is launch­ing his new book “You Might Be From Hamil­ton If …” on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 30, at the Spec­ta­tor Au­di­to­rium.

MacKay, who has been shar­ing his art with the Spec­ta­tor read­ers for 20 years, will be avail­able for book sign­ings and a short pre­sen­ta­tion on some of his more con­tro­ver­sial car­toons.

The book, MacKay’s first, is a col­lec­tion of 120 car­toons — most pre­vi­ously un­pub­lished — re­flect­ing life in the artist’s home­town of Hamil­ton.

“I’ll do a pre­sen­ta­tion of some of my fa­mous and some­what no­to­ri­ous lo­cal ed­i­to­rial car­toons from the past two decades,” says MacKay. The event, which takes place Aug. 30, at 7 p.m. at the Spec­ta­tor Au­di­to­rium, 44 Frid St., is free, but space is limited and peo­ple want­ing to at­tend are asked to pre­reg­is­ter through a link on MacKay’s web­site, mack­ay­car­toons.net.

“You Might Be From Hamil­ton If …” is pub­lished by MacIn­tyre Pur­cell Pub­lish­ing and is avail­able at The Spec­ta­tor’s Cus­tomer Ser­vice desk, Chap­ters In­digo stores and The Hamil­ton Store, 165 James St. N., or through Ama­zon.ca, for $19.95.

The Hamil­ton Store is also host­ing a book sign­ing for MacKay on Sept. 9.
