Pivot Reader Series!

Pivot Reader Series!

  • The Steady

Here comes a mid-winter Pivot with three writers who make us feel good about the future of writing in this country. We have Jane Ozkowski’s All-Ages-YA, Adam Zachary’s strange new novel, and works in progress from Toronto/Montreal powerhouse Julie Mannell. This will be a good “I went and saw these people read in a small bar in 2017” kind of story to tell, I promise.

Cast List:

Julie Mannell is a writer of poetry, fiction and essays, and an editor at Matrix Magazine. She is the recipient of the HarperCollins/Constance Rooke Scholarship, the Mona Adilman Poetry Prize and the Lionel Shapiro Award for Excellency in Creative Writing. Her work has been featured in the National Post, Toronto Star and Huffington Post, among others. At the moment, Mannell is an MFA candidate at the University of Guelph and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from McGill University in English Literature and Philosophy. Originally from Fonthill, Ontario, she currently splits her time between Montreal and Toronto.

Jane Ozkowski’s YA novel, Watching Traffic, is available now from Groundwood Books/House of Anansi. She can be found online atwww.janeozkowski.com and in real life riding her bicycle through the streets of Toronto.

Adam Zachary (1993–present) is an artist and writer. Their debut novel The End, by Anna is out now with Metatron. Adam is also the host of a private reading/party series and an editor at The Puritan.

Pivot on February 22nd
with Julie Mannell, Jane Ozkowski, and Adam Zachary
