us conductors

“DZEEEEOOOoo! Just as hard as it is to make a theremin sing so it is hard to pull off a novel like this. But Sean Michaels does it. Us Conductors bridges body and soul, science and art, and like theremin music, it’s of this world and magical at the same time.”
—Ismet Prcic, author of Shards

Blue Heron books pic The unpretentious atmosphere of Blue Heron Books with its comfy chairs, wood shelving and creaky floors lends itself to a long slow, browsing session, but under that sleepy atmosphere vibrates a strong pulse. The store has a quaint, old-fashioned look with an up tempo vibe, because there is always something happening. The store is a hub for the community and a bastion of calm chaos where everyone is welcome, even the local dogs that drop by with their owners for a treat from the tin kept under the front counter. 62 Brock St. W., Uxbridge, Ontario. 905-852-4282

Blue Heron Books is on my map. How could you fail in the book business with a name like Shelley Macbeth? She runs great events and never disappoints with hundreds in attendance. She knows each of her customers and their tastes. Shelley is that great combination of woman of letters and an entrepreneur. Her staff loves books and thrive on recommendations. — Cathy Gildiner

Literary-themed Birthday Parties in the Studio

We take a literary theme and twist and turn it into an amazing mix of crafts, storytelling, treats and loot bag fun. Whether your child is a fan of Geronimo Stilton, Fancy Nancy, Rainbow Fairies, The Wimpy Kid, Splat the Cat,  or any of Robert Munsch’s many wonderful characters, a birthday party in the Blue Heron Studio will be a joy for everyone! Your child will love the personalized approach and you will love the ease of a no stress birthday party.

 

Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday party.  Your attention to detail, great ideas, and focus on making sure every kid had a great time made the party a big success. I loved the Lorax theme, and the environmentally friendly activities and prizes you came up with. The spacious and beautiful studio was an excellent venue, and you and your staff were great to work with. What I am most happy about is that my daughter said the party was “AWESOME!” I would definitely recommend a Blue Heron Studio birthday party to any family looking for a low-stress, super-fun, wholesome alternative.
