ANNOUNCEMENT: I HAVE FOUND A NEW FAVOURITE TEA SHOP!!!
Leif and I were taking advantage of the sun in La Fontaine park when we stumbled upon the Festival BD de Montréal. So here are the 5 BDs that I found on Saturday!
This week: a post-apocalyptic novel by Aliette de Bodard in the ruins of Paris, the ethics of mining trauma for literature by Lindsay Nixon, the inimitable Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars by Kai Cheng Thom, a critical look at IWD in Québec by Émilie Nicholas in Le Devoir, and more!
