Introducing Aviation in Canada: The Formative Years and Re-Introducing The Great CANAV Book Launch!

It’s been 5 books & 5 years since CANAV has had a book launch party. Time now to renew a good old tradition. Since we kicked off our CF-100 book at artist Pete Mossman’s Toronto pad and CFB North Bay back in ’81, we’ve welcomed many a book anywhere from Timmins to Ottawa and Dorval. (Check the archive at canavbooks.com for great party pics of past book launches.)

This time we’ll be welcoming the aviation book of the year — Aviation in Canada: The Formative Years, Vol.2 of our Centennial of Flight series. If you’re a fan, you’ll sure have a good time if you can make it. Have a beer and some nibblies and see who’s around. Where? A good spot — Royal Canadian Legion Branch 527 (tel. 416-633-0345). Easy to get there: 948 Sheppard Ave. W., north side of Sheppard a stone’s throw east of Allen Rd. opposite Toronto Fire Stn.143 (Map). You’ll see a sign pointing you up the lane to the Legion. Public transit? Branch 527 is a short walk east from the Downsview subway station. When? Thursday August 13 from 2:00 to 8:00, so drop by, kick a few book tires and check out the aviation crowd. If you need to get in touch: 416-698-7559 or larry@canavbooks.com …

You can RSVP to our Facebook event here. If you have pre-ordered online, you can pick up your copy of The Formative Years at the launch, and get Larry to autograph it on the spot… See you there!
