December 15, 5:30-7pm. Free entry.

We’re holding a little release night next Tuesday December 15 to celebrate the collective work of the new issue of HAMSTER Magazine; Issue Whitu.
From 5:30, you can find us at our Montreal St gallery space for some cool, sparkling drinks and light snacks before we convene to listen to extracts from the audiobook edition at 6pm. We will also have the free print, EPUB, and audiobook editions of the magazine available for you to take home or browse in a quiet, relaxed environment. Head to the related publication page after the release to browse the PDF, EPUB and audiobook editions. 
It would be a treat to have you there to help celebrate the work of everyone involved.
