Desert Pets Press Fall 2018 Launch

  • 385 Roncesvalles Avenue Toronto, ON, M6R 2N1 Canada (map)

Reunion Island Coffee - 385 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto

Join us to celebrate Desert Pet Press’ return from the underworld! We’ve resurfaced with two new chapbooks: Lilith by Jacqueline Valencia and Sea Burial Laws According to Country by Kasia van Schaik (Kasia Juno).

Some launch advice from our poets:

Please arrive “…washed and dressed in handmade clothing, the seams left unfinished” (Kasia van Schaik, “Russia”)

and be prepared to “Get dizzy and pretend you’re a half-nymph, / part baby dragonfly, part insatiable want” (Jacqueline Valencia, “Hey have a holy time”).

There will be chapbooks and beer/wine/coffee/tea for sale. There will be short readings by the poets. There will be surprises…
