Toronto launch: El Ghourabaa

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for the Toronto 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.

The Toronto launch will feature readings and discussion from El Bechelany-Lynch and Trish Salah.

This is a free event. Books will be available for sale on site from Another Story Bookshop.

Please pre-register!
