We've had so much fun with all you fine folks the last two months, that we just want to keep all this rooftop revelry going . . . so join us on November 18th for a Roomie edition of the Rooftop Reading Series!
The long weekend is now upon us! If you're looking for a meaningful way to spend some extra time this weekend, why not check out a few films playing at the Vancouver International Film Festival. Here are our top picks for the Thanksgiving Long Weekend:
Room is pleased to feature the captivating and thought-provoking Deep Salt Water, an interdisciplinary collaboration between four artists—author Marianne Apostolides, collage artist Catherine Mellinger, photographer Melanie Gordon, and composer Paul Swoger-Ruston—based on the forthcoming book by Apostolides of the same title.
Getting a peek of an avid reader’s bookshelf is one of life’s simple pleasures. If you’ve ever shown up at a house party and gone straight to the host’s bookshelf, you know how satisfying it is to snoop through other readers’ libraries. The editors of Room love reading (obviously), and we’re giving you a glimpse of our shelves and sharing how we get the most out of our sacred reading time.
