Film Festival!


We are very pleased to share that on March 31st we will be holding our first ever literary film festival at our shop!

Good friend Sebastian DeTrolio (collector of 16mm movies, local superstar and all-around amazing person) will be on-hand all afternoon and deep into the evening with selections from his mammoth personal collection of original movies and documentaries screening films in our very own spooky basement! We are ecstatic about this and are very glad to have him here.

Sebastian will be bringing original films on (among other lit subjects) William Faulkner, b.p. Nichol, Beatrix Potter, Maurice Sendak, A.M. Klein, Mordecai Richler, W.O. Mitchell, Lorraine Hansberry, Emily Dickinson, and Dylan Thomas). So essentially to us this is the coolest thing in town.

Also to accompany this rogue's gallery of literary superstars we'll be having a 25% off sale on all Literature all day and night. So pile up on those books of poetry to impress your girlfriend/boyfriend m'dears.

Also, since it is Easter weekend we will also be having an Easter Egg hunt in the bookshop all day as well as free MINI-EGGS available to ALL WHO COME! So thank you for making the time to visit.

Hope to see you there!
