La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly
176 Rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K2
Join us for the launch of two epic Drawn & Quarterly releases by living legends: Jason Lutes's Berlin and Julie Doucet's Dirty Plotte: The Complete Julie Doucet. Both authors will be in attendance.
Julie Doucet will be interviewed by Martine Delvaux, feminist essayist and professor of women’s literature.
BERLIN deftly and beautifully brings to life the experiences of normal people during the decline of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazism. Alexander Chee says Berlin is "a newly necessary book... now when we need examples of how to stay human to each other in the face of a politics that turns friends into enemies."

DIRTY PLOTTE is an enduring collection of revolutionary comics from a genre-transforming and critically acclaimed cartoonist. Doucet's stories, first published in the 1980s and 1990s, are candid, funny, and intimate, plumbing the depths of the female psyche while charting the fragility of the men around her.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly would like to acknowledge that our events and bookstores are located on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. It has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. We are grateful that creating and sharing stories has been a part of this land for thousands of years. As an organization that believes in inclusivity, we believe that it is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here, in this space.
