What can authors and publishers specifically do to support your bookstore, either locally or from a distance?
It’s cheaper to order online. Cheaper. That’s all. It cheapens us all.
Everyone knows I’m not getting monetarily rich selling poetry. But Toronto is much richer with KFB being here. So, go ahead, be cheap, as we all must once and awhile. But, keep us on your radar and donate, buy poetry, from here. Reap the benefits.

Walking into Monastiraki (for the first time I might add) I was struck by its quaintness and the subtle elegance of what it had on display, with a vintage Conan the Barbarian comic and a How do You Say it in Chinese? guidebook particularly catching my attention.
