Event Description

What does a hilarious and heartfelt contemporary romance featuring a software engineer and her decoy fiancé have in common with an arresting, photo-lingual memoir examining mothers and mothering, sisters and caretaking, and colonized bodies? How does a tempestuous retelling of Freydís Eiríksdóttir’s only female-led Viking voyage across the Atlantic at the dawn of the 11th century relate to a series of exquisite, searingly honest essays about what it means to be human, to be a woman, and to be a reader? These books are as diverse as their authors, but they all have women at their centre, and were written by women who call Victoria home.

Between musical breaks by Victoria-based musician, The New Pornographers member (vocals, keyboard, and guitar) and City of Victoria Artist-in-Residence, Kathryn Calder, authors Sara Desai, Danielle Geller, Tamara Goranson, and Susan Olding will read from their new books.

Hosted by Kathryn Calder
