Librairie Drawn & Quarterly presents Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton: Women in Clothes – A conversation. A clothing swap. A book launch.

We're already getting excited about this big fall event! Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits and Leanne Shapton will be at the Rialto Hall (5711 ave. du Parc) on the evening of Tuesday, September 16th to launch their new collaborative book, Women in Clothes! There will be a clothing swap, as well as an on-stage discussion facilitated by none other than Fiona Duncan, New York-based writer and bookseller (and onetime Librairie D&Q staffer)!

There will be a clothing swap! Co-presented by Empire Exchange! Start culling your wardrobes to prepare for the clothing swap! If you would like to participate, please bring up to 5 items for contribution. All unclaimed pieces will be donated to a local women’s shelter.

About Women in Clothes: Through original interviews, conversations, surveys, projects, diagrams and drawings from over six hundred contributors – including Miranda July, Molly Ringwald, Lena Dunham, Sook-Yin Lee, Rachel Kushner, Sarah Nicole Prickett, and Tavi Gevinson – Women in Clothes explores the wide range of motives that inform how women present themselves through clothes, and what style really means.

Sheila Heti is the author of five books, including the critically acclaimed How Should a Person Be? She writes regularly for the London Review of Books and is an editor and interviewer at The Believer magazine.

Leanne Shapton is a Canadian illustrator, author and publisher based in New York City. She is the former art director of Saturday Night Magazine and The New York Times Op-Ed page, and the author of five books, including Swimming Studies.

Heidi Julavits is the author of four novels, most recently The Vanishers, winner of the PEN/New England Fiction Award. She is a founding editor of The Believer magazine and has published short fiction in Esquire (included in The Best American Short Stories 1999), Story, Zoetrope, and McSweeney's.
