I haven’t been doing many readings lately but I have one coming up on Monday May 6. Vancouver writer Lorimer Shenher‘s memoir This One Looks Like A Boy: My Gender Journey to Life As A Man is being launched as part of Proust & Company, the reading series run by Glad Day Bookshop. Confirmed performers at the event are poet and author Gwen Benaway, myself, and others to be confirmed.
Here are the details. Bios for performers can be found at the Facebook event:
This One Looks Like A Boy Toronto launch with Proust & Company
Monday, May 6, 2019, 7pm
Glad Day Bookshop, 499 Church Street, Toronto
Glad Day’s own legendary reading series, an evening of luminary authors, music and drinks at the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookstore.
This month, trans-identified and non-binary authors come together to celebrate the Toronto launch of Lorimer Shenher’s This One Looks Like A Boy: My Gender Journey to Life As A Man. Join Lorimer along with poet and author Gwen Benaway, author Tom Cho, and more!
First started by Shane McConnell and Jeffrey Round almost a decade ago, Proust & Company seeks to highlight the best of queer and trans authors (and the occasional ally, too!). The name of the game is variety, so stop by for a drink and an unforgettable literary experience.
I’ll be reading an excerpt from my novel-in-progress: a relatively recent segment that I wrote while on an artist residency at The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico. I’ll be excited to share it with an audience.
Hope to see you there!
