Apt. 9 recently launched our above/ground press interview chapbook at the 20th anniversary party of rob mclennan’s tireless press. It was a great celebration of rob’s accomplishment over twenty years and Apt. 9 was thrilled to play a small part in the festivities. See Pearl Pirie’s photos of the reading here.
As Apt. 9 begins its own fifth year of operation, we have three exciting new books in the works:
the grass is a yard now, again | jesslyn delia smith
CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY | Spencer Gordon
How to Love a Lonely Man | Rhonda Douglas
The books will be ready in October. We’ll have them on the Apt. 9 table on October 12 at the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair, before launching them formally the following Friday, October 18 at Raw Sugar Cafe in Ottawa. We’re also planning to make a trip to Toronto in November to sell our wares. Details of each event and of each book to follow as they become available. In the meantime, a teaser photo of the covers:
Apt. 9 is also dipping its toe back into the world of online commerce. Our Etsy shop is up and running again. Books in print can now be purchased online here. We’ve got six books up there now in limited quantities that reflect their availability.
See you in October!
