Just in time for Halloween, we are excited to host a thrilling evening of horror fiction, presented by Mason Jar Press and Neon Hemlock Press!
Join us for readings by four authors on Thursday, October 29th, from 9 PM to 11 PM (please note the time - it's a late show at the Argo!). The event is free and online, just email events @ argobookshop . ca
to register and get the Zoom link!
**UPDATE** we are thrilled to announce that the event is going to be moderated by the excellent Leigh Harlen, who has read from their super queer super fun were-coyote novella at the Argo in the past. Even more reasons to get excited about horror night!
