Welcome to A Novel Spot!

We have lots of exciting things planned this month, starting with a visit from novelist Sandra Gulland on Tuesday, April 15th at 7 p.m. Sandra is the author of a trilogy of novels based on the life of Josephine Bonaparte. Her new novel The Shadow Queen tells the story of Claudette, a young, impoverished actress who finds herself at the centre of the Sun King's glittering--and secretive--court. Please RSVP by email at novelspotbookshop at gmail dot com. 

With bookstores closing across Toronto, our own Sarah Pietroski was interviewed by Matt Galloway on CBC's Metro Morning to discuss why she opened a bookstore. In case you missed it, you can listen to the interview here

We were also delighted to learn that A Novel Spot has been longlisted for the Libris Award for Bookseller of the Year! You can view the full list of nominees here

And we were also featured on the blog 365 Etobicoke as one of the top things to do in Etobicoke.
