M ansfield Press is sneaking into Montreal tonight for its third time in as many years, and launching new titles by Marko Sijan, Rishma Dunlop, Lillian Necakov, George Bowering, and Carey Toane.¬†You’ll hear great readings by Sijan, Dunlop, and Toane and Gillian Sze will be our special guest reader.

Hosted by Mansfield editor Stuart Ross, the place to be is CFC, 6388 St Hubert (upstairs).

Meet Gunther, and for your own safety, keep your distance.
