Last night, Edmonton's Glass Bookshop hosted Vivek Shraya to kick off a national tour for The Subtweet!
It was the first *stop* on a virtual national tour to promote The Subtweet. Although all stops are on the web, the tour still aims to connect with local audiences accross the country.
Vivek began with a musical performance.
Followed by a reading from The Subtweet!
Followed by a question and answer period facilitated by Glass Bookshop co-founder Jason Purcell.
Although the event was virtual, it had such an amazing community feel and there was such a positive reaction from the audience. It was a wonderful and intimate literary event during a time when we've been unable to host/attend events in person.
Missed *attending* last night? Don't fret, Vivek's launch of the Subtweet continues:
Wednesday, April 15th at 2pm ET in *Toronto* and 7pm PT in *Vancouver*! (This afternoon)
Thursday, April 16th at 5pm PT in *Calgary*
Sunday, April 19th at the National Arts Centre (Time TBD)
Get your orders in, Montreal and beyond (we ship Canada-wide), via our online store!
