If you've seen the September issue of Quill & Quire, you'll know that this fall represents a watermark for us at Biblioasis: it marks our tenth anniversary as independent publishers. To celebrate, we'll be hosting a series of retrospective features and launches in Eden Mills, Montreal, Toronto, Waterloo, Windsor, and Fredericton. In addition of featuring a stupendous sampling of our list to date, and sometimes serving as the launches for such new fall titles as Kathleen Winter's The Freedom in American Songs and Diane Schoemperlen's By the Book, each event will feature a unique lineup of readers as well as panel discussions with guest-hosts, not to mention book giveaways and other festivities.
The dates as well as event pages for the various events are listed below. Come tilt at windmills with us!
