As the summer winds down, Apt. 9 is lucky enough to have two more titles to launch. Regrettably, these two books mark the departure of two of our favourite writers in the Ottawa community: Leah Mol and Justin Million. Leah and Justin are longtime stalwarts in the In/Words community that operates in and around Carleton University. Involvement in VERSeFest, Literary Landscapes, and running the monthly In/Words Reading Series, these two will leave a mark and a gap in Ottawa on their departure. We’re miserable to see them go, but overwhelmed and privileged to be able to print their work.
The books will be launched on Wednesday August 24 at Raw Sugar, 8:00pm (readings at 8:30pm). As that night approaches, the books are starting to take shape. Take a look at Leah Mol’s And I’ve Been Thinking Dangerously and Justin Million’s HADRON for the first time.
We hope to see you out to say goodbye properly to these two.
