Burning Effigy Press Spring Launch

Tomorrow evening, Burning Effigy Press is hosting its Spring Launch Party at the Victory Cafe. (581 Markham Street.) It starts at 7:30 and runs until 11. This should allow you plenty of time to change out of your church clothes and into your evening wear. Properly timed, you could perhaps enjoy a brandy and cigar before attending.

It's a free event, featuring readings by Timothy Carter (Section K), Jeff Cottrill (Guilt Pasta), and Brett Alexander Savory & Gord Zajac (The Distance Traveled: A Little Slice of Heaven). Burning Effigy Press' editor-in-chief, Monica S. Kuebler, will be your host.

Though rain has been forecasted, weathermen have all the credibility of astrologers. Should their baseless predictions turn out to be correct, just remember what my dear grandmother used to say: "It never rains in a pub."

Monica has offered three free books to you, the loyal BlogTO readership. To receive your copy, simply email me before they're gone at ryanoakley at blogto dot com. Please provide your mailing address. Then sit back, relax and wait for your little surprise to arrive.
