We Support Black Lives Matter

June 6, 2020

We believe that systemic racism and cultural racism exists in Quebec which breeds discrimination and inequality.

From June 2-June 9, we will be donating 10% of our proceeds from our bookstores to the following Montreal nonprofits:


Maison d'Haiti

Fourchettes de l'Espoir

Resilience Montreal

*Please note that many of these important works by black authors are going into reprint and wait times for them will be longer than usual.  Thank you for your support and your patience.
