February is Black History Month
Discover & read Black authors this month. We've got a 25% discount on select titles and an exciting author event with Drs. Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain coming up. As with every month of the year, Black lives—and histories, voices, stories, and futures—matter.

With Toronto back into lockdown, the store will remain closed for in-store browsing. A Novel Spot will continue to offer pickup options, either at the door or curbside—available Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10–5.

Sarah will be in store for phone consultations and to process online orders on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11–4 but will not be opening the door for curbside pick-up except on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Book consultations and recommendations must be done over the phone.

Once-a-week free delivery for orders over $50 in the M8 and M9 postal codes are still available. You can order any books you like through our online store, available 24 hours a day.

Thank you all for your patience and continued support during this time. For updates, subscribe to our newsletter here.
