Bone & Bread launch

Last night, Montrealers came out in numbers to attend the launch of Saleema Nawaz’s highly anticipated novel BONE & BREAD. The night started across the street at Cafe Depanneur (thanks Benoit!), where the audience was lucky to assist to an incredible performance by The Monday Night Choir, which featured our other neighbor, Nathan, from Phonopolis. The choir was just beautiful, enchanting the audience and finishing off with four gorgeous Estonian wedding songs.

 Bah, sorry for the blurry picture! But really, this was awesome!

Following the musical act, everyone crossed the street for the main event: Saleema Nawaz’s launch of her new book BONE & BREAD. And let me tell you, this was quite the literary event, the place was PACKED! 

 The crowd (lookin' good Montreal!)

 A great introduction by Kate McQuaid from House of Anansi.
Following a short reading, there was a Q&A period with Drew Nelles, editor in chief of Maisonneuve, during which Saleema revealed her partisanship for Fairmount Bagels (I second that). Speaking of Maisonneuve, make sure to check out their feature interview with Saleema by the awesome Melissa Bull. 

Saleema!

A big thank you to Saleema and her publisher Kate from House Of Anansi! Also, thank you to Maisonneuve Magazine, Cafe Depanneur, The Monday Night Choir, and all of you who came out and showed love for our community!
