Argle Bargle Books is a Canadian black-owned business.  Our main goal is to publish works that exuberantly threaten the status quo. Through satire, we aim to interrogate established and existing systems of beliefs, questioning and poking fun at cultural values, when necessary.  With a high level of social engagement, we uphold a progressive outlook for the future.
