That’s cool.

The first thought that popped into my head when I read that was “Puppet shows!” Montreal has a pretty lively contemporary puppetry community, and I can easily imagine puppeteers performing theatrical adaptations of excerpts of books sold there.

I miss book stores. Boston and Cambridge MA used to have tons of them. Those were the days.

Reminds me of Bookpeople here in Austin. It’s a local store and they often do events like book readings with authors, and i haven’t attended their other types of events but they do a mystery book club and other neat things.

Never been to Canada but it’s good to know about this place. Would love to visit if i ever had the chance
