Renowned Canadian author and illustrator Alex A. visited three YK1 schools this week. Alex, who lives in Montreal, met with students from École J.H. Sissons, École William McDonald Middle School and N.J. Macpherson School earlier this week. An avid drawer since the age of eight, Alex encouraged students to be creative and use their imaginations. He even used some of our students and staff as inspiration for new cartoon characters! Alex, who’s best known as the author and illustrator of Super Agent Jon Le Bon and Mini-Jon, will also host a book signing at the Yellowknife Public Library on Feb. 15 starting at 6:30 p.m. Thanks for visiting Yellowknife, Alex!
