My Peacock Librarian costume came together "just so and I shine from head to toe." (It also helps that peacock blue is my favourite colour so I have many items in this colour kicking around my place, including these lovely sneakers.) On October 28, 2017, I joined the Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD) for the Mini Monster Mile and Halloween Hustle in Centennial Park, Brampton, ON! What a lovely but chilly morning! Despite the bone-chilling temperatures (a teeth-chattering 8 degree Celsius or 47 Fahrenheit) and the drizzle, many mini Monsters made it for my reading from Malaika's Winter Carnival and marauding for Halloween treats and eats in the micro-marathon on the mile. (Try repeating that one fast many times.) The kids were dressed as a princess, Robin Hood, an astronaut Julie Payette, pizza slice, and even a lead singer from #Kiss. Even Malik, my peacock friend, was there. I also signed books with my stiff frozen fingers. Great to see so many people supporting diverse literature in Canada. I loved the gift that I received from the event organisers, care of the sponsor Starbucks. Now time to warm up.
