Upcoming Launches!

Or as I prefer to call it, Literature of the Future. I am sorry to note that these are shortened descriptions so as to maximize content but you can read more on our 211 events page or follow us on Facebook.

And of course, you already know about Wednesday's event. Let me just give it a shout-out here: click here to win two tickets to see Daniel Clowes and Seth in conversation at the Ukrainian Federation from the lovely folks at Midnight Poutine! Or just buy 'em here.

Okay! Here we go!
