Apt. 9 Press will be present at the upcoming Ottawa Small Press Book Fair on Saturday, June 18th. Sadly, I will not be personally present (though for exciting reasons; I’ll be speaking at this conference in Montreal). Jeff Blackman (poet, friend, father, neighbour, gardener, and publisher of Horsebroke Press), will be running a half-Apt. 9, half-Horsebroke table. Come out to see his new exciting things, and be sure to pick up Apt. 9’s latest chapbook, Lea Graham’s This End of the World: Notes to Robert Kroetsch. We will also have backlist from Lillian Necakov, Michael Casteels, Christine McNair, and of course, copies of Five.
Speaking of Lea Graham’s chapbook, it has received three separate reviews since it was published last month. We’re very happy that people are responding to it so positively! You can also find a new review of Marilyn Irwin’s the blue, blue there here, and Michael Casteels’s solar-powered light bulb here.
If you’re looking for older Apt. 9 backlist, you can search at Apollinaire’s Bookshoppe. The fine folks running the store have been purchasing Apt. 9 titles for quite a while now, and have copies of things that I am long since sold out of. There is also a new store opening in Dundas, Ontario called The Printed Word that has a number of Apt. 9 titles in stock. Be sure to visit if you’re in that neck of the woods.
Enjoy the book fair! Buy me anything cool if you’re got money to burn!
