#TORONTOBOUND: JIM CARREY IN TORONTO FOR “HOW ROLAND ROLLS”
The Stars just keep coming to Toronto! Funnyman Jim Carrey will be in-town this weekend to promote his new Children’s Book, How Roland Rolls. It was just a year ago that the Newmarket-born Actor was in the City filming Kick-Ass 2 and who would’ve known he had this up his sleeve?
HOW ROLAND ROLLS is a story about a wave named Roland who’s afraid that, one day, when he hits the beach, his life will be over. But when he gets deep, he’s struck by the notion that he’s not just a wave he’s the whole big, wide ocean! The story shows humanity’s interconnectedness through the metaphor of a wave in the ocean.
The Book is lavishly illustrated by Rob Nason, who won a Golden Reel award for his work as Art Director on the film Anastasia, as well as an Annie Awards nomination. His work on Thumbelina garnered the Hans Christian Andersen award. His Cover for the inspiring grass-roots Children’s Book, Saltwater Taffy, was nominated as Cover of the Year and was a Finalist for the prestigious Benjamin Franklin award.
You can see Carrey in-person this Sunday at Indigo Yorkdale (3401 Dufferin Street, Toronto, ON) at 1:00 PM EST as he’ll be signing copies of How Roland Rolls. Wristbands will be handed-out at 10:00 AM to those who buy the Book in-store that day. He will be signing copies of the Book only and there will be a maximum 1-2 copies signed per Customer.
