Zoe Whittall Launches "The Best Kind of People"

The great ~Zoe Whittall~ will be stopping by Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on November 4th at 7:00 pm to launch her new novel, "The Best Kind Of People", a story about a family living in a small, upper-class town whose world is turned upside-down when the husband & father, who teaches at a prep school, is suddenly arrested for sexual impropriety. It’s a book that, according the Globe & Mail, is arriving “at the perfect time, landing in the middle of the current conversations about rape culture, consent, victims’ rights & men’s rights.”

Zoe will be joined on stage by Montreal people Jonathan Garfinkel & Jessica Bebenek. We’ll have short readings, then Jess will be a moderating a little Q&A with Zoe on stage, then you can stick around for a bit & socialize.

ZOE WHITTALL’s previous novel, "Holding Still for as Long as Possible," won a Lambda Literary award. She works as a freelance TV writer & journalist in Toronto & her books have been translated into French, Swedish, and Korean.

JONATHAN GARFINKEL’s play, "The Trials of John Demjanjuk: A Holocaust Cabaret," has been performed in Canada and Germany. His articles have appeared in The Globe and Mail, Pen International, The Walrus & other outlets.

JESSICA BEBENEK is a poet and writer currently completing an MA in Creative Writing at Concordia. Her poetry & short fiction have appeared in Prairie Fire, The Puritan, Little Brother & many other publications. She has published three chapbooks, the most recent of which is "Kettle Song."

This event will be hosted by GUILLAUME MORISSETTE.
