Tonight! Jacob Wren and Gaudalupe Muro double book launch

Join us at the Librairie tonight at 7 p.m. for the launch of two new novels from BookThug: Polyamorous Love Song by Montreal's own Jacob Wren and Air Carnation by Guadalupe Muro.

The evening will feature readings by both authors, as well as a short acoustic set by Guadalupe Muro, Ana López and Julián Muro - all the way from Argentina, featuring original music from "Songs for Runaway Girls", the soundtrack to Air Carnation.
