Now that Halloween’s over and we’ve officially had our first accumulating snowfall, a little holiday cheer is starting to seep in. Store displays are fully stocked with gift ideas and the colour red is overtaking all the fixtures in sight.
Since many among us are probably already starting to think about getting their holiday shopping in full swing, I thought I’d take a moment to mention an upcoming opportunity to pick up some unique and interesting gifts for the readers in your lives.
The Toronto-based Meet the Presses collective puts on an annual Indie Literary Market at Trinity–St. Paul’s Centre, where indie book publishers and magazines come together to sell their wares, many of which are not available in stores. You’ll find books, chapbooks, broadsides, recordings and more.
Admission is free, so there’s really no reason not to stop by and check out this great literary event this coming Saturday, November 16, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Our very own Tim Inkster will be there selling a nice selection of PQL books, including the just-published political satire that is The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll and George A. Walker. Stop by and say hello!
We hope to see you at the event this Saturday. Happy shopping!
