Out and About with the Quill: 2018 Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market

With the holidays fast approaching, there’s nothing like a bookish market to get you set for the season by giving you an opportunity to stock up on literary treasures that you won’t find in stores. That’s why we were so pleased to participate in the Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market held on November 17 at Trinity-St Paul’s Centre. Here’s a peek at what went down at the fair, courtesy of Don McLeod.

PortraitThanks to all who stopped by the PQL table to do a bit of shopping. If you missed us, we hope to see you back in Toronto at the Bound Book Arts Fair on December 9th at the Arts & Letters Club!
