Join us IN PERSON for the official McGill-Queen’s University Press launch reading of two new poetry books, Jason Camlot’s Vlarf and John Emil Vincent’s Bitter in the Belly. Each book creates its own gleefully strange and sadly hilarious world from a wide gamut of emotions and texts. It will be a poetry event of the fun variety. The reading can host up to 40 attendees in the brand new Argo Bookshop space; vaccination status will be checked at the door and masks will be required throughout the event.
