Read and Write With Pride
June 9th, 7pm
10702 Jasper Avenue
Read and write with pride! Join Audreys books and 7 local LGBT writers on June 9th at 7pm for an evening of storytelling, memoir, and poetry. Authors Rob Browatzke, Alex Powell, Heidi Belleau, and Sheldon L’Henaff will read aloud excerpts of their fiction featuring gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender characters: stories of romance, sex, kidnapping, and coming of age that will take you from Wonderland to the battlefields of WWII, from the halls of a high school in Saskatchewan to a glitzy Vancouver art gallery. Marc Colbourne will share the gripping true story of Arsham Parsi, an Iranian queer activist who came to Canada to escape persecution, and poets Marina Reid Hale and Laurie Macfayden will delight you with their personal, political, and always engrossing verse.
After the reading, the panel as well as Audreys’ knowledgable staff will be on hand to answer all your questions about LGBT lit, whether you’re looking for more to read or interested in creating or publishing your own works. With more ways than ever to share our stories, reading and writing with pride has never been more achievable . . . or enjoyable!
Author signing and light refreshments to follow. This event is free to attend!
