While we were out...

... celebrating the launch of Chaudiere Books at Pubwells, Amanda was writing about the event on her weblog.

Clare Latremouille holds the rarest book in Ottawa - her novel, The Desmond Road Book of the Dead. As of the reading on Thursday there were only two advance reading copies at the launch. More, thankfully, were to be printed as of today.

Monty Reid not only launched his newest book of poetry, Disappointment Island, he also gave away illustrated posters which feature his poetry. I had the opportunity to photograph Mr. Reid at his Gatineau office of the Canadian Museum of Nature a week before my son was born and my author photo of Monty is featured on the rear cover.

Meghan Jackson, one of the three who were among to be published by Ottawa's newest publishing house Chaudiere Books, read from her collection, movements in jars.

Here's a team photo that was included in the October issue of Quill & Quire magazine. At the time the mag went to press, editor Carmel Purkis (back right) was part of the core team of Chaudiere Books along with rob mclennan and Jennifer Mulligan.
