Book launch: All Sleek and Skimming
On Monday, May 1st at 8:00 p.m., All Sleek and Skimming: Stories (Orca Book Publishers) will be launching at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W. in Toronto). The book is, according to its editor Lisa Heggum, an anthology of short stories for older teens.
Seven contributors will read at the launch (Gil Adamson, Diana Aspin, Gary Barwin, Susan Kernohan, Derek McCormack, Ania Szado, and Stuart Ross) and Carmen Elle will play solo and then with her band, the Whoremoans. You may remember Carmen from our Spring 2006 launch a few weeks back.
Maggie MacDonald, author of Kill the Robot and member of the Hidden Cameras and Republic of Safety (we profiled Maggie in the Fall 2005 issue of Shameless) has this to say: “Dark, tender, and funny, this is the book I wanted when I was a teen.”
