Join us January 13, Tuesday, as we kick off the New Year with the first of the Saint Mary’s Reading Series in 2015. Our first reading of this year is with Canadian author Kathleen Winter. The reading will take place in the Atrium, Room 101 at 7pm.
Kathleen will be giving readings from her latest publication, The Freedom in American Songs, fantastic collection of short stories:
Meet Xavier Boland, the untouchable cross-dresser, who walks loose and carefree as an old Broadway tune. Meet Miss Penrice, a lost old woman forced by wartime to parent a child for the first time. Meet a Zamboni mechanic turned funeral porteur, Madame Poirer’s lapdog (and its chastity belt), a congregation of hard-singing, sex-obsessed Pentecostals, and more. With The Freedom in American Songs, Kathleen Winter brings her unusual sensuality, lyrically rendered settings, and subversive humour to bear on a new story collection about modern loneliness, small-town gay teens, catastrophic love, and the holiness of ordinary life.
We hope to see you there!
