Tory Gates' LIVE FROM THE CAFE Available Now on Brown Posey Press
The picturesque small town of Harlandsville, Quebec doesn't seem to offer too much. A one-stoplight village, the heartbeat of the town seems to revolve around a strange little coffee shop. One step through the door of Le Café, and you enter a new world. Regulars and strangers alike are welcome to this place, where coffee is served one pot at a time through a monstrous invention, the pastries are homemade, and the music is largely a cross-section of Canada's history.Presided over by Luc, son of one of the town's most loved residents, and his tattooed partner Emily, the café provides a home within a home. Life, love, prejudice and change are considered by its owners, their employees, the people of the town and the multitude of mysterious (and famous?) strangers who show up for good coffee and to play music. Go back home, back in time, meet old friends and make new ones...you'll never what'll happen, or who will show up next, Live from the Café.
