Frontenac House has launch events planned in March and April for Borderlands by Mark Vitaris, Impact Statement by Bob Stallworthy, and the poet laureate project YYC POP by Sheri-D Wilson. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing instability caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we have been forced to postpone these launches indefinitely, as our venue has cancelled all events.
We will be reevaluating our event calendar at the end of April, and are keeping our collective fingers crossed that this situation has settled down favourably by then. Our hope is that we will be able to launch these titles in the fall, if not sooner.
To all our authors, friends, and patrons, we wish you all well as we work our way through this.
Wash your hands, people!
