The year was 1969 and big things were brewing in the basements of Ottawa. Next to a boiler which would become our namesake, Octopus Books was born. Now a whole 40 years later, 2009 is here in a big way at Octopus Books!
We are planning a full year of talks, speakers and events to celebrate 40 years of progressive thinking and change and to thank you for your continuing support throughout the years. So drop by the store to see what's new and keep your ears to the ground and your eyes to the web, phone poles and community events boards near you for updates on all the exciting goings-on here at Octopus Books.
Everyone here at Octopus is super excited for the year and we hope you'll join us as we strive to make this our best Octoyear yet!!
