Feathertale’s Pop-Up Shop is back!


The most exciting small press pop up store and literary festival on the entire planet (yes, the planet) has returned to Toronto. LITBANG! is an annual, month-long festival that takes small press magazines off the bottom of newsstands and features them front and centre in a combined event venue/storefront. The pop-up store is open during the day and a literary event space opens in the evenings.

This year LITBANG! is located at the Milk Glass and features more small-press magazines than ever, including Feathertale, CAROUSEL, Taddle Creek, Broken Pencil, Poetry is Dead, Maisonneuve, untethered and more. The shop also features limited edition art, posters, T-shirts, buttons and a curated selection of curious used books ($5 each, 4 for $20).
