Tonight: Inanna Publications double launch with Ursula Pflug and Phyllis Rudin!

Join us tonight at 7 p.m. for an Inanna Publications double book launch, featuring Ursula Pflug and Phyllis Rudin and their new books - Motion Sickness and Evie, the Bab, and the Wife, respectively.


Motion Sickness is a flash novel containing subtle magic realist and slipstream elements. It consists of 55 chapters of exactly 500 words each accompanied by a wood-cut like, scratchboard illustrations that follow one young woman’s humorous and poignant misadventures in the worlds of employment, friendship, dating, birth control and abortion.


About Evie, the Baby and the Wife: When your womb says jump, it’s safer not to ask how high. Played out against the backdrop of the fight for women’s reproductive rights in Canada, Evie, The Baby, and The Wife  is the boisterous tale of a mother and daughter at odds, struggling to reconnect across a uterine divide.
