Birthday party pictures

Our 40th birthday party on October 30 at the Carleton Tavern was a huge success, thank you all for being a part of it! Over 100 people came to celebrate the store's long journey, meet friends old and new and share the stories of the colorful history of Octopus Books.

Here are just some of the photos from the night, we'll be soon posting a link with more glimpses of the evening. Photos taken by our poster designer Nadia Collins, www.redsonjadesigns.com.

Jean-Claude Parrot, the former CUPE leader and hero of many birthday party attendees covered the past, present and the future.

Carleton Tavern was packed!

One of the early 1970s Octopus figures, Bruce Winer,
is cutting the cake with Lisa.

Archival Footage (in the photo) , Brothers Creeggan and
the Bidiniband entertained the crowd late in the night.
