MacKay book launch Aug. 30 at The Spectator
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The book, MacKay’s first, is a collection of 120 cartoons — most previously unpublished — reflecting life in the artist’s hometown of Hamilton.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.
