Join us at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Friday, October 14th for an evening with American writer Chloe Caldwell, who will be launching her brand new essay collection, I’ll Tell You in Person. Accompanying Chloe will be Montreal writers Fariha Róisín and Karissa LaRocque, and we’ll also have a short Q&A on stage.
CHLOE CALDWELL is the author of three books, I’ll Tell You in Person (CoffeeHouse & Emily Books, 2016), the novella Women (SF/LD, 2014) and the essay collection Legs Get Led Astray (Future Tense Books, 2012). She teaches creative nonfiction writing in New York City and online and her work has appeared in Vice, Lenny Letter, Salon.com, Nylon and many other outlets.
FARIHA RÓISÍN is a writer, essayist, editor and podcaster living on Earth. Her work has appeared in Broadly, Flare, Teen Vogue, Fusion, The Establishment and elsewhere online and in print. We recommend Fariha’s fantastic series on Medium, “Muslim Women Speak.”
KARISSA LAROCQUE is currently an MA candidate in English at Concordia University. She is involved with the Spectra Collective, Headlight Anthology and Off The Page Literary Festival. Her work has been published in The Dalhousie Review, GUTS Magazine, 7Mondays, Zettel and elsewhere. Like every queer on the internet, she too has Instagrammed a picture of herself reading Chloe Caldwell's novella "Women" in her underwear.
This event will be hosted by Metatron’s GUILLAUME MORISSETTE.
Doors at 7 pm, starts at 7 h 30 pm.
