1. We Invite you to join the Leaf Press Facebook Group for special announcements this fall. On October 31 (scary) we’ll be posting the following:
2. The fall titles are out! Check out the website here for the amazing Patrick M. Pilarski and his book Huge Blue. In one month (September) he birthed this amazing western Canada travelogue in Japanese short-form, got engaged, and completed his Ph.D. in computer engineering. Our hats are forever off to him (but not our toques this winter). We’ve launched Kit Pepper’s book Let Beauty Be: a Season in the Highlands, Guatemala on Gabriola Island. There’ll be another event in Nanaimo in early December. Click here for more information on this book, which Phil Hall has called “fresh as slaps of light.”
