Somehow it is September!
What better way to celebrate the start of the school year than by talking books? Join us Wednesday, September 12, to meet Oscar Malan, proprietor of Novel Idea, Kingston’s independent bookstore. Longtime friend of the twig Carla Douglas will host as Oscar shares his experiences of the joys and challenges of running a small independent bookstore in the twenty-first century.
If you’re a Kingston resident you’re probably familiar with the store; you can read a bit about its background, including how it weathered the coming (and going!) of Chapters Indigo, in this article for Publishing Perspectives written by our own Carla Douglas. We’re lucky enough to have Carla hosting Oscar’s talk for us.
Editors Kingston is gearing back up for a fun and productive year. We are back to meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at Ongwanada Resource Centre, beginning with a short discussion of Twig business and national announcements before moving on to introduce a discussion topic or visiting speaker.
We’re also trying something new: a twig annual general meeting, to be held online via videoconference, later in the month. Details coming soon!
Meanwhile, we hope to see you on the 12th. Bring a friend!
We meet at the usual place and time:
- Ongwanada Resource Centre, 191 Portsmouth Avenue
- 7 to 9 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30)
- Light refreshments
- Free for Editors Canada members
- $5 for visitors (first meeting free)
