On Monday October 29, more books will be heading into town via Véhicule Press. The Montréal-based publishing house will be kicking back in Toronto, boasting four new poetry titles: The Mechanical Bird by Asa Boxer, Morning Gothic: New and Selected Poems by George Ellenbogen, Sympathy for the Couriers by Peter Richardson, and Christopher Patton’s Ox. There’s an online chapbook feature that can be navigated to get a sense of what the press is all about.
A night of poetry is sure to be expected in addition to the company of special guest Anita Lahey, author of Out to Dry in Cape Breton, and finalist for the Trillium Book Award and the Ottawa Book Award. The book launch will begin at 7 p.m. at Rivoli (334 Queen Street West).
