I spent the Halloween season in Salem, casting spells and working on the manuscript. It sure is a magical town! I have an upcoming reading at the Centauri Festival of Word and Image. 100% of ticket sales will be used to buy school supplies for the Centauri Rosebud Academy in India. Please come! Some of my students will also be reading!
Details: Sunday, November 13th. 4pm-6pm. Revue Cinema. 15$. Buy tickets here.
March 26th, 7pm-8:30 at UBC Library/Bookstore – Robson Square, Plaza Level, 800 Robson St. (between Howe and Hornby St.)

I’m going to be reading at the Animals and Animality Conference put on by Queens University. I did my undergraduate degree at McGill in Anthro/Archaeology and am so stoked to be reading a non fiction story called Issues of Skin at an academic conference.
The key note speakers will be Carol J. Adams (Sexual Politics of Meat) and David Clark (Animal Witness, Animal Testament; or, Who was ‘the last Kantian in Nazi Germany’). Check out the conference line-up here: www.animalsandanimality.com
My personal fav lecture topics include: The Rhetoric of Wolves, Sexy Beasts and Bestial Sex: The Production of Human in Donne’s ‘Metempsychosis’, Pest Architecture, and Of Cats and Men in Medieval Iceland.
God bless you, obscuro-academia!
