MONDAY, MAY 21st, 2018: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE by Renaissance Press
Local publisher celebrates fifth anniversary with mega book launch and Frankenthology
Four books by Ottawa authors to be launched on Sunday May 27th at 5 p.m. at the Red Lion (47 Clarence Street, Ottawa)
Renaissance — a local publisher of diverse Canadian voices — is celebrating its fifth anniversary!
Since its inception in May 2013, Renaissance has signed a total of 19 Canadian authors; built a team of 13 editors, designers, and artists; published twenty novels and three games; and are planning ten more releases, including one game and one anthology, by the end of 2019. What started as a love affair for local authors (and stories that don’t fit neatly in a genre, niche, or demographic) grew into a passion for Canadian books by and about marginalized people.
Entrance is FREE, and you’ll be able to buy new books and get them signed by our authors! There will also be door prizes, author readings, and a literary character’s costume contest (costumes are optional).
Last, but not least, Frankenstein lovers, you’re in luck! As part of their fifth birthday celebration, Renaissance is also launching an anthology to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the release of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It is currently on Kickstarter, funded in just under a week! — and all backers of the Kickstarter project will enjoy an additional 10% off any Renaissance purchase they make at the launch!
