Shani Mootoo book launch

We are very excited to be hosting the Ottawa launch of Shani Mootoo's new novel, Valmiki's Daughter, at our favourite watering hole, The Manx Pub (370 Elgin) on Saturday, April 4th at 5:00 p.m.

Get a sneak preview and check out this clip of Shani reading from Valmiki's Daughter...

Joining Shani that evening will be one of our favourite Ottawa poets and all-round nice guy Rob Winger who will read from his book Muybridge's Horse, which was shortlisted for the GGs for Poetry in 2007, and will treat us to some of his new writing.

Hope to see you there!

In case you missed it.....

If you missed our event last week with Dr. Gabor Mate and Dr. Samantha King you can get a sense of the evening by visiting where an audience member wrote about each of the speakers and gives a great synopsis of each discussion. There are also a lot of great comments, so check it out.
