Maisonneuve Magazine has been “described as a new New Yorker for a younger generation, or as Harper’s meets Vice, or as Vanity Fair without the vanity,” so it’s no wonder that when they host an event they bring together some of the most interesting, intelligent, and talented Montrealers in town.

Letters from Montreal is a brand new speaker series brought to you by Montreal’s very own Maisonneuve Magazine to address varied topics through inspirational lectures. The topic will be “Doing it Right” and will be discussed and deliberated on Wednesday, May 13, at Café L’Artère (7000 Av du Parc).
