Montreal launch: El Ghourabaa

June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for the hometown launch of El Ghourabaa: A queer and trans collection of oddities

Metonymy Press is delighted to publish its first-ever anthology!

Seeking uncanny, fun, experimental, creepy, sarcastic, playful, vulgar, inventive, sexual, weird, sweet, and evocative works, editors Samia Marshy and Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch set out to collect Arab and Arabophone queer writing. The result is an anthology brimming with gems by emerging and established writers and an homage to the lineages and complexities of queer Arab life. Multi-genre, multi-generational, and global, El Ghourabaa is an enigma, a delight, and a contribution to an ongoing conversation and creative outpouring.

In addition to Marshy and El Bechelany-Lynch, the Montreal launch will feature Sherine Elbanhawy, Naja Kassir, Leila Marshy, Nofel, and Olivia Tapiero.

Brique par brique is wheelchair accessible. This event is free and open to everyone. Books will be available for sale on site. Food and drinks will be served and we will be collecting donations for a Palestinian trans woman in crisis.
