Bookish Happenings

I visited This Ain't the Rosedale Public Library this weekend at their new location in Kensington Market. Which was my first time at This Ain't... altogether, actually, so I've nothing to compare it to, but I was impressed. A great selection of journals and magazines, and shelves and shelves of bookish spines. I bought Girls Fall Down by Maggie Hellwig, because all the reviews I've read have intrigued me, and because I love the quality of Coach House books.

In other bookish news, I am beyond excited to discover that my favourite poet has a new book forthcoming: Jennica Harper's What It Feels Like For a Girl is out in September by Anvil Press.
