If you’re looking for an awesome event to attend tonight and you happen to be in Toronto, be sure to drop by the launch of Other Tongues: Mixed-Race Women Speak Out (edited by Adebe De Rango-Adem and Andrea Thompson), which has just been published by Inanna Publications.
OTHER TONGUES: MIXED-RACE WOMEN SPEAK OUT is an anthology of poetry, spoken word, fiction, creative non-fiction, spoken word texts, as well as black and white artwork and photography, explores the question of how mixed-race women in North America identify in the twenty-first century. Contributions engage, document, and/or explore the experiences of being mixed-race, by placing interraciality as the center, rather than periphery, of analysis.
The launch is Thursday, December 9th at 6:30 p.m., and will be taking place at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore (73 Harbord Street). Refreshments will be served. Authors will read at 7:15 p.m.
The editors are also working on setting up launches elsewhere in North America, so be sure to join the Other Tongues Facebook group to keep informed about events in your area.
