It's Our First Birthday!


It has been a year since we opened the doors to our little corner of the world. The exact birthday of Comma Books is hazy in our minds, but in a way, it has always existed deep in our hearts. We created Comma Books out of a shared love and belief in two thing: the words that live within us, and the way we share it with others. Our dream was to reimagine literature for the modern world: practical, compact, and easy to reach, and yet still intimate, rich, and limitless.

We are honoured and excited to invite all of you –– family, friends, collaborators, and loyal readers –– to join us on our little anniversary party this December. The event will include writing workshops, readings by your favourite writers, musical guests, and an exhibition interpreting our body of work. Come join us for a weekend of exploration, curiosity, and celebration.
