Misha Glouberman and Sheila Heti book launch!

This is a little under a month away, Montreal!  Check out the Facebook event deets.

Tickets are on sale now at Casa del Popolo (4873 Saint-Laurent) or chez the Librairie (211 Bernard O.)! 

The evening will feature readings by Misha and Sheila, as well as three lectures which have been curated by Mark Slutsky: Marci Denesiuk on Evolution and Shadow Puppetry, Anthony Kinik on The Evil Eye, and Jesse Staniforth on The Theory of Relativity

In case you've missed my earlier blathering, here's some information about the book they're launching, The Chairs are Where the People Go:

A chapter of The Chairs Are Where The People Go as appeared in The Believer
Misha Glouberman’s friend and collaborator, Sheila Heti, wanted her next book to be a compilation of everything Misha knew. Together, they made a list of subjects. As Misha talked, Sheila typed. He talked about games, relationships, cities, negotiation, improvisation, Casablanca, conferences, and making friends. His subjects ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous. But sometimes what had seemed trivial began to seem important—and what had seemed important began to seem less so.

The Chairs Are Where the People Go is refreshing, appealing, and kind of profound. It’s a self-help book for people who don’t feel they need help, and a how-to book that urges you to do things you don’t really need to do.
