Great review from Publisher’s Weekly; check out the full page here.
Tonight is the night (Oct 4th)! Come to No One Writes to the Coloniel (460 College Street) from 7PM-10PM for a free reading and Q/A. I will be reading from Dirty Kids and Anna Maxymiw will also be reading from her book, The Lodge, forthcoming with McClelland & Stewart.
After attending a particularly inspiring talk from CrippledScholar this week, I have realized how drastically inaccessible my current website is for those who use screen readers. I will be updating/rebuilding this site within the next few months to address this, and will be adding more regular content. Please be patient with my minimal coding + html skills.
1. TORONTO: Oct 4, No One Writes to the Colonel (with Anna Maxymiw)
2. NYC: Oct 8, BIZARRE Bushwick (Sex Witch Talent Show Brooklyn)
3. EDMONTON: Oct 13, Theatre Lab, Allard Hall (part of LitFest Alberta)
4. MONTREAL: Nov 3, Le Cagibi
Most excellent mini tour poster by the delicious Aaron Manczyk!
Also, thanks for the tour shout-out Maisy! They have also posted a teaser of my old piece.
“Rainbow set a nice scene for interviewing because you’re already feeling open and loved and safe. People were able to talk about some of the darker aspects of their lives. It was super heavy and I didn’t have the best coping strategies at 22, so it was really overwhelming emotionally for me. You have to sit there with the person and feel what they’re feeling to get a good interview.”
“A lot of the people that I interviewed were women and queer folks. Many of them opened up completely to me and that’s not something I take lightly. I wanted to get it right and I wanted to honour the fact that their experiences were oftentimes very difficult and complicated. They required time to listen and re-listen and contemplate upon.”
