Miranda July tickets available as of today!

Did y'all know that the multimedia artist/storyteller and 21st century indie icon Miranda July is coming to town? And did y'all know that the event is FREE? Yes, you read correctlyfree as the American spirit, gratuit, as in no charge. But here's the catch: seating is limited and the event is ticketed. As of today, Tuesday October 18th, tickets will be available at Media@McGill (231 Ferrier) and at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard Ouest). Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis and there is a limit of two tickets per person. Regretfully, we can not hold tickets.

We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting Miranda July as she launches her newest book, It Chooses You. This event is presented in partnership with McGill’s Art History and Communication Studies Department, the Canada Research Chair in Technology and Citizenship, and Media@McGill. The event will take place at the Ukrainian Federation (5213 Hutchison) on Monday, November 14th at 7:00 PM.

In procrastination mode while finishing the screenplay for her second film, Miranda July obsessively read the PennySaver. Who was the person selling Care Bears for two dollars each? She crisscrossed L.A. to meet a random selection of PennySaver sellers, grabbing hold of the invisible world in a book that blends narrative, interviews, photographs with July’s off-kilter honesty and deadpan humor.
Miranda July is the author of No One Belongs Here More Than You, winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. July wrote, directed, and starred in the film Me and You and Everyone We Know, which won a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Her second film, The Future, was released this summer.
