What people are saying:

Thank you for putting on such an imaginative and daring series of programmes, for honoring Purdy, and for inviting my little buddy, Neil Besner, and me to participate. We both thought it was the right thing and better still a hoot. This was a wild and wonderful scheme! A fabulous act of imagination and daring. - Poet Dennis Cooley (on Mondo!Purdy 2009)

FEATURED NEW ARRIVALS FOR THE WEEK OF 3/17/08


PLEASE NOTE: This is the second-last New Books page before our move in April 2008. Due to the absolute chaos of renovating our new 8400 sq. ft. building on Garry, we have only been putting fifty books on this page for the last few weeks (instead of the usual hundred or so). The New Books page will return to full strength after our re-opening.

(To hold or order any of these books [or to check on current availability], please email kelly@aquabooks.ca.)
