19. Fantastic Figures: the Magic in All Bodies
September 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Mermen, ogres, centaurs, and witches dwell on the pages of Amanda Leduc’s novel The Centaur’s Wife and Therese Estacion’s poetry collection Phantompains. In these two unique and beautifully crafted works, the narrator navigates trauma, grief, pain, and hope through a surreal and fantastical landscape. But these fabled figures also provide a lens into the lives of other bodies – disfigured, disabled, or otherwise unconventional in their aspect, feared for their difference, but imbued with their own power and beauty. In conversation with Erin Ball.
Leduc is supported by Author Patron Quarry Medical Pharmacy.
This event is in celebration of the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
