About

The Montreal Review of Books is a free, nationally distributed journal of reviews, features, and essays on English-language books by Quebec writers and publishers. The mRb covers literature, non-fiction, poetry, memoirs, history, graphic novels, children’s books, and more.

The mRb is published three times annually by AELAQ, the Association of English-language Publishers of Quebec (Association des editeurs de langue anglaise du Quebec), which gives a clear voice to Quebec’s literary community.

Do you run a library, bookstore, café, or other business and would like to carry the mRb? Get in touch!

The mRb is available for free from newsstands at the following locations:
