Apt. 9 Press: A Bibliography (2009-2015)

Apt. 9 has been quiet since our very busy Fall season. Plans are underway for our Spring titles to be released at the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair on June 13, 2015. Full details to follow.

The website has received a minor redesign. As Apt. 9’s list grew, things became increasingly unwieldy on the old website. This one should be a bit easier to navigate, and a bit cleaner to look at. To mark this (absurdly) minor occasion, here is an abbreviated bibliography of the press going back to the release of our first titles more than five years ago now. 30 books, 6 broadsides, 2 folios. A lot of paper cuts in there! 4 more Apt. 9 titles will join that list before 2015 is out.

Dave Currie on CBC’s In Town and Out

On Saturday November 8 (tomorrow morning), Dave Currie will be interviewed on CBC’s In Town and Out shortly after 8:00am. He’ll be speaking about his new Apt. 9  chapbook, Bird Facts, alongside Frances Boyle discussing her forthcoming debut trade collection, Light-carved Passages (BuschekBooks).

Good luck, Dave! We’ll be listening!

Don’t forget to come out to the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair after listening to the show. And be at the pre-fair reading tonight!

Upcoming Book Fairs (Ottawa, Toronto)

Apt. 9 will be running tables at two upcoming small press book fairs.

The Ottawa Book Fair runs on Saturday November 8, from 12:00-5:00 at Jack Purcell Community Centre. We will have our newest title, Dave Currie’s Bird Facts, as well as copies of Five and a good selection of backlist. We will also have a reprint of Christine McNair’s recently bpNichol-shortlisted chapbook pleasantries and other misdemeanours. Don’t miss the Pre-Fair reading on Friday November 7, with Dave Currie officially launching Bird Facts.


Meet the Presses is running their fabulous Indie Literary Market on Saturday November 22 in Toronto from 11:30-5:00 at the Tranzac Club. This will be our third time taking part, and we can’t wait. All the same books will be on the table, and we’re looking forward to discovering the winner of the bpNichol Chapbook Award.

Hope to see you at one or both!
