The Last Unicorn Screening Tour is heading north this month to start a special five-week-long Cross-Canada Tour sponsored by Front Row Centre Events, part of Canada’s largest theater chain, Cineplex.
From April 17th through May 21st Peter and Connor will be in 24 different locations all the way from Victoria, British Columbia to Halifax, Nova Scotia, putting on at least 29 different special Last Unicorn screenings — and maybe more, if enough of Peter’s Canadian fans get the word and buy tickets.

The last day of Fan Expo Vancouver will be Peter’s 75th birthday, so please come help him celebrate.
Thanks to Cineplex’s help in putting the Canadian tour together, we’re able to put two special commemorative items together for the Canadian Tour. One will be available at the start of the tour, and the other will come out (for reasons which will be obvious in a moment) after it finishes. They are:
These will be for sale at every screening, signed by Peter. We will also take online and email orders for signed and unsigned copies until the end of May, though shipping on those will have to wait until the tour leg itself is over. After the end of May no more copies will be printed, so this one is going to be a collector’s item! At shows the poster price will be a flat $10. Online and email orders will be $15 unsigned and $25 signed, plus shipping.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure and reserve a copy (and please tell us which show you expect to be at if you want to pick yours up in person).
AN EXTRA-FANCY COMMEMORATIVE LAST UNICORN HARDCOVER, containing the full text of Peter’s novel plus a bunch of extras to make it uniquely Canadian, such as: cover art by Joy Ang, Canadian Tour Map endpapers, a maple leaf/unicorn design debossed in the binding’s cover, a special essay about The Last Unicorn from Canadian academic/media critic Carlen Lavigne, Peter’s personal Canadian tour diary, and a gallery of color and b&w photographs taken on the tour (including all the coolest audience costumes!).
Also, if you reserve your copy at a Canadian screening, the one that you attended will be marked with a special star. This book will obviously not come out until after the tour is over because we won’t have all the extra material in hand until then. The price for this special hardcover will be $50 plus shipping, or $40 plus shipping for Last Unicorn Screening Tour members.
