Welcome to Furby House Books

I was standing in our backyard. In front of me were a dozen cardboard boxes. They were full of books – the first editions of my titles. Liberated from storage, these boxes were now a problem. What should I do with them?

I contemplated a  conflagration – a match tossed idly into the pile. Wouldn't work; the finest of Port Hope’s fire brigade would appear with alacrity, frightening Claire and the neighbours.

I had another sip from my mug. How to deal with this detritus of my younger self – still remembered fondly but no longer wanted?

Brilliant idea! Give the boxes to the local book store. I’ll sign some of the books with my usual flourish. Furby House Books could benefit, and I might see some overdue royalties!

Now they tell me that I have my own website – my faithful typewriter is apoplectic about the indignity.”

November Happennings


If you missed last Friday's book signing, we still have copies of Eve McBride's book, "No Worst, There is None".


And we have your next two Friday evenings covered - two more author signings.


Friday, November 14th: If you're a parent, an educator, a social worker, a friend or neighbor, you will want to read "What Time is the 9:20 Bus?". And you will want to meet the author, Lucinda Hage, from 7 p.m. at the bookstore. The book tells you what is possible when individuals with different abilities are given a chance.


Friday, November 21st: Interested even somewhat in provincial politics? You should meet Greg Sorbara, a Liberal Party strategist, a 25 year MPP, and Minister of Finance from '03 to '07. He has had a front row seat on some of the most significant changes in Ontario history. His book, "The Battlefield of Ontario Politics" is a must-read. Meet him from 7 p.m. at the store.


The art display of Barbara Bickle's work continues until the end of the month; come on a Friday evening or anytime else to see this whimsical work.


Remember that Saturday, November 29th is the annual Santa Claus Parade; you can see Arlene Smith's wonderful drawings for possible parade costumes in the bookstore windows, together with great possibilities for holiday gifts.

August's artwork is by artist Sonja Brown "Interestingly, each of these portraits is the result of a one session study, where I painted an old Masonite board that had a painted, scratched and generally distressed surface. On the advice of my teacher, mentor and friend Fiona Crangle, I allowed some of the previous markings to show through the images I was painting. The result was surprising, sometimes haunting and always interesting. I became captivated with the process itself and I painted a whole series of portraits and am now planning to work from my own photographs. I want to see if I too, can find in Steve McCurry's words "the essential soul peeking out".
