Christine McNair

Christine McNair’s Apt. 9 Press chapbook, pleasantries and other misdemeanours, has garnered some attention recently. Related to the chapbook launch at Raw Sugar in June, Christine was profiled at Open Book: Ontario. The chapbook made it onto Pearl Pirie’s ongoing 95 Books project, with Pearl admitting a “soft-spot” for the sequence “the problem of orchids.” Christine also has a feature reading in Ottawa this week. She will be appearing with rob mclennan in The Reading Series (In/Words), hosted by Dave Currie for the final time this month. Full details are here.

The June installment of the Ottawa Small Press Fair also resulted in one more bit of media attention. Centretown Buzz wrote a feature article on the twice-annual event and Apt. 9 was happy to be interviewed alongside so many of the fair’s stalwart and exciting attendees.

Fall plans go on. An announcement should be along shortly.
