We’re hosting our first ever reading event, featuring new work from the contributors of You Care Too Much, a collection of writing and art on the question of self care. We’re thrilled to be hosting Inuit writer and designer Adina Tarralik Duffy (Coral Harbour, Nunavut) and long-time community organizer Jessika Hepburn (Lunenburg, NS), as well as locals Brooke Manning (owner of Likely General) and Sofia Mostaghimi (Past curator of the Emerging Writer Reading Series). Just like YCTM, the readings will be as diverse as their authors, ranging from creative non-fiction to poetry to short fiction.
Let’s build a world where we seek to ask more questions than we insist on answers, one where we're eager to listen to someone else’s story, or see the world through a poem. Together, let's search for a balance where we can take better care of ourselves and each other.
Readers will be mic’d. Doors @ 7pm / We’ll get into it @ 8pm. Event is free to attend but we'll be selling books & merch. More details to come!
