We’re quite looking forward to the Montreal launch of Tightrope Books’ Best Canadian Poetry 2012 this upcoming Friday. The in-store event will feature readings from contributors both local and visiting from abroad including Asa Boxer, David McGimpsey, Stephanie Bolster and Leigh Kotsilidis and will be hosted by this year’s contributing editor, Carmine Starnino. We suggest that you come a little early (7:15) as we expect this one to fill up quick.
To tide you over in the meantime, I thought I’d take some vanity shots of the glorious little books. There is a healthy amount of glare and dust in the pictures for effect. Rest assured, these were notÂ Photoshoped in or out. Â (That’s me in the pale of the window, photography skills wanting).
