grrrl about town
Okay, I’m rewriting my comments from below as a post so more people will see it. Ah, the limitless power of being a Shameless blogger!
For fans of grrrl (and judging from Holland’s post below, there ought to be plenty), Jennifer Whiteford is on a book tour right now as part of the Perpetual Motion Roadshow. If you’re in Montreal, she’ll be reading from the novel at Bibliograph/e Zine Library’s first birthday party on Wednesday June 21st. Also featured will be satirist/puppeteer Jeff Cottrill, ephemera artist Daniel Trese, Daniel McKell and Mark Harris. Did I mention cake, zine sale and dancing? Bibliograph/e is part of Cafe Toc Toc, 6091 Ave. du Parc (corner Van Horne). Show starts at 8, pay-what-you-can.
In Toronto, Jen will be reading on June 23rd at Renaissance Cafe (1938 Danforth Ave.) w/ irreverent songwriter Shawn Sage and post-modern theatrical poet Andrea Thompson! Check out the Roadshow’s website for the rest of the tour dates, and more info on the Roadshow itself, which is pretty rad.
For those of you who can’t make it, I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
