Book Signing with Guillermo del Toro

Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 4 – 9 pm
Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

In conjunction with our upcoming exhibition Guillermo del Toro: At Home With Monsters, we are excited to announce a book signing by the legendary artist himself.

The book signing is expected to be a very popular event. Here are some tips to help you plan for the day:

  • Buy your book, or any Guillermo del Toro-themed item in advance at shopAGO or at Fan Expo between August 31 – September 3
  • shopAGO will be open early at 9 am on September 27
  • Keep your receipt – you will need to show proof of purchase
  • Those who arrive with the book, or Guillermo del Toro-themed item and receipt can go directly into the book signing line at 9 am to avoid the purchase line up
  • Capacity is limited so arrive early to ensure you get your chance to meet Guillermo del Toro
  • Costumes are welcome and encouraged so long as they do not pose a risk to the art in the Gallery
  • To avoid long queues at Coat Check please refrain from bringing backpacks
  • For more helpful tips on enhancing your experience please visit our Guidelines section
