Happy Harbor from Edmonton


Happy Harbor has many talented staff members and friends who love to see kids inspired and creative. That's why we will come to you and help show the wonder that is graphic storytelling.

We offer in-class lectures and demonstrations that encourage kids to see storytelling and reports in a different light. We also offer insight into all the different career paths in the industry of comics; from writers, editors and proof-readers to pencillers, inkers and colourists and even advertising and promotions.

Our visit is offered free of charge and we are available at the convenience of the school/library and their staff typically on Fridays and Saturdays.

The length of times for the presentations is very flexible and can be set by the school/library to fit their timetables. We have done visits from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Also the group size and ages are not a concern. We've spoken to 10 kids and up to 200 at one time, tailoring our presentation accordingly.

Distance is also not a problem. We've travelled to Ribstone, Cold Lake, throughout Saskatchewan and many points in between. We're happy to help where we can (but we appreciate any assiatance in covering transportation costs).

Also, award-winning store owner Jay Bardyla is available for teacher and librarian conferences across the province (and a bit beyond). Please contact him via email to book a visit to your school, library or conference at
