TONIGHT! 7pm, The BOOKMOBILE Book Launch!

The BOOKMOBILE Book has arrived! Join us for its Montreal homecoming TONIGHT  Wednesday, June 10th at 7 p.m. The event will feature a conversation between The BOOKMOBILE Book editors Leila Pourtavaf and Onya Hogan-Finlay, along with contributors Anna Leventhal and Isabelle St. Amand.

The BOOKMOBILE Book brings to life the projet MOBILIVRE BOOKMOBILE project, an exhibition of artist books, zines and independent publications that traveled across the US and Canada from 2001-2005. Hosting workshops, artist talks and special events in various venues throughout North America, the Bookmobile collective also made connections with an amazing array of individuals, groups and organizations. This publication tells the tales of the making and of the doing, from the road and from the studio.

With reflective essays that examine some of the contemporary motivations and inspirations for the project, the book also contains many photographs, selections of books and zines that were part of the BOOKMOBILE’s touring collections, tour guide diaries, and comics.

Onya Hogan-Finaly and Leila Pourtavaf were co-founders and coordinators of the projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project from its inception and throughout its 5 year life span.

Anna Leventhal and Isabelle St. Amand were projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project collective members and trusted tour guides during multiple North American tours.
