The Coming Envelope 7 Lauch
A launch for The Coming Envelope 7 (BookThug Press's journal of innovative prose) featuring new work by Masha Tupitsyn, Jesse Huisken, Kyle Buckley, Valerie Witte and Moez Surani.
Our special guest Oisin Curran has lived in Montreal for the past seven years. He is the author of the amazing, little known, novel Mopus and this will be his last reading in Montreal for awhile.
The evening will also feature a reading by writer and cultural critic Masha Tupitsyn. She is the author of LACONIA: 1,200 Tweets on Film (ZerO Books, 2011), Beauty Talk & Monsters, a collection of film-based stories (Semiotext(e) Press, 2007), and co-editor of the anthology Life As We Show It: Writing on Film (City Lights, 2009). Most recently she is the author of Love Dog (Penny-Ante Editions, 2013), an art book that is part love manifesto, part philosophical notebook, part digital liturgy (http://www.penny-ante.net/pa012.html).

Residual Reading Series
Residual Reading Series is pleased to present a reading of two new works of fiction by Marguerite Pigeon and Natalee Caple. Natalee’s new novel, In Calamity’s Wake, has been described as a cinematic adventure, a dual, or dueling, narrative in two voices that darts between, as Zoe Whittall writes, “mythology, historical accounts, song lyrics, poetry, rumours, and fiction of the time period.” Pigeon’s Open Pit confronts the landscape and the civil rights of indigenous people against the backdrop of big business and amid the chaos of love, relief and difference, resulting in the questioning of what it means to be situated against will.
Join us as these two talented and unique writers launch their books together in Montreal.
