Smokeroom on the Kyle Book Launch

Please join us for the official launch of Smokeroom on the Kyle written by Ted Russell and illustrated by Tara Fleming on Tuesday, July 11, at 7:00 pm at Chapters (70 Kenmount Road, St. John’s).

The book will be available for purchase. Kelly Russell, the author’s son, and Tara Fleming will both speak at the beginning of the event and then sign copies. There will be light refreshments.

Ted Russell’s “Smokeroom on the Kyle” made its debut on CBC Radio, when Uncle Mose regaled audiences in the 1950s and ’60s with tales about a little town called Pigeon Inlet. The famous poem has lived on in recitation, performed by many for schools, radio, and television. Now, this whimsical yarn about jigging squid in outport Newfoundland and Labrador appears for the first time as a beautifully illustrated book for children.
