Join Biblioasis and The Word Bookstore for the launch of the forthcoming Montreal Issue (No. 89) of Canadian Notes and Queries. Guest-edited by Marko Sijan, the issue features poems, essays and interviews from 14 emerging and established local artists, who offer a range of commentary on how aspects of the city have changed over the last few decades. The Montreal Issue evokes how this city, in the words of contributor Trevor Ferguson, “is distilled into the synapses and nerve-endings” of its artists. Marko Sijan will be emceeing, and the evening will feature readings from Norm Sibum, Elisabeth Gill, Asa Boxer, Donald McGrath, Robert Melançon, Trevor Ferguson, and Robyn Sarah.
