Attendees of this event will be privy to purchasing the first (for real) physical copies of her debut with us, Soft Focus. Also venturing north from New York is Eric Amling, who has designed books for us and is also a poet published with the great Birds, LLC. From Montreal, we've got Ashley Opheim and Jay Ritchie- the powerhouse behind Metatron, who also happen to fux with poetry. We will also have our bestselling author and woman behind LESTE with us: Sara Sutterlin. To round out the night, we've got some essential Toronto favs. Adam Zachary, our fav live performer, recent Metatron author and force behind Light Reading, will be with us (lucky!). Last but not least, we are ecstatic to be joined by Sennah Yee, who's debut full-length will be published with us in the fall of 2017.
