17. Couple Cold Snap: Fiction

September 26, 2020 @ 1:45 pm - 2:30 pm

Award-winning author Shani Mootoo said in a NowToronto interview: “I am interested in the fact that no matter how closely you live with someone, you can never really know what is in their mind.” In Polar Vortex, lesbian couple Priya, a Trinidadian, and Alexandra, who is white, have moved to a home in the country. When someone from Priya’s past joins them, the stability of their relationship is disrupted. Join Shani and Aara Macauley as they look at the acts of betrayal and of love, the secrets and deceptions that make this story seductive and tension-filled.

Co-presented by Kingston WritersFest and Reelout Queer Film + Video Festival.
Author Patron: Twoonie Book Club, Shani Mootoo
