Rebecca Păpucaru launches The Panic Room with Linda Besner
Join us for the launch of Rebecca Păpucaru excellent new poetry collection THE PANIC ROOM, with guest Linda Besner on Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 pm.

Preoccupied with the complexities of identity and selfhood, memory, embodiment, loss, and family, THE PANIC ROOM is about the giants that loom over us. A second-generation Eastern European Jewish immigrant, Păpucaru attempts to grapple with connecting with her family's past as well as the distinct feeling of being disconnected.

Graphic Novel Book Club: Poppies of Iraq
Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for this October is Poppies of Iraq by Brigitte Findakly & Lewis Trondheim! We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard Avenue West) on Wednesday, October 18th at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Librairie Drawn & Quarterly staffer Luke Langille. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!

Findakly’s memoir about growing up in Mosul, Iraq leading up to and during Saddam Hussein’s Reign explores memory, identity, childhood, and place through a combination of sparse drawings and text. The book is told simultaneously through the lenses of Findakly’s current and childhood perspectives. Events that were perceived as ordinary during her childhood are seen with a new frame of reference. The book explores cultural history, politics, identity, immigration, and the meaning of home, and seems especially relevant to an understanding of current events.

***We are offering a 20% discount on Poppies of Iraq from now until the meeting date!***
