Starlight, Waterloo, and Cristina Rizzuto

A report on Indie Night at the Starlight, by Zara Rafferty, who took the lovely photos too.

On Tuesday, May 15, I attended Indie Lit Night at the Starlight Lounge. Borne out of a partnership between Words Worth Books and The New Quarterly, the annual event brings together several acclaimed indie presses, along with Canadian writers and readers, in a celebration of Canadian literary talent.
About 60 writers, readers, and publishers were in attendance at this year’s event. Based on the buzz in the room, Mandy Brouse, co-owner of Words Worth Books, called the event, “an unmistakable success.”  In the interest of full-disclosure, I have to admit that I was geeking out seeing familiar faces from BookThug, Coach House, ECW, The New Quarterly, House of Anansi, and Blaurock.
