Fiction Funnies Tonight! Katrina Best, Cordelia Strube, and Teri Vlassopoulos!

Tonight, Wednesday August 17th at 7pm, three of Montreal's finest fiction writers read and discuss comedy in their writing!

The whole evening will be hosted by the wonderful Ian Orti (L, The Olive and the Dawn). Katrina Best, Cordelia Strube and Teri Vlassopoulos will read from their latest work and follow up the short readings with a Q&A about humour, their writing and where the two intersect. Can serious subject matter be told using comedy? Is humour too often used as a crutch in fiction?

Montrealer Katrina Best's first book of short stories, Bird Eat Bird, is a funny, smart, offbeat and insightful collection

Cordelia Strube, author of Lemon, is a Montreal native now living in Toronto. Her novel features a teenager trying to survive high school with three (sort of) mothers, one deadbeat dad, one cancer-riddled protege, one tree-hugging stepbrother and a 60% average.

Teri Vlassopoulos is the author of the short fiction collection Bats or Swallows, stories told with grace, wit and a bold and original eye for comedic detail.
