Vancouver reading event: Trish Salah & Hazel Jane Plante

March 3, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Metonymy Press and Massy Books present a free afternoon reading event featuring Lambda Literary Award–winning poet Trish Salah (Wanting in Arabic, Lyric Sexology Vol. 1) and Vancouver-based author Hazel Jane Plante (Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian), forthcoming from Metonymy Press).

Born in Halifax, Trish Salah is the author of Wanting in Arabic (TSAR 2002, 2013) and Lyric Sexology Vol. 1 (Roof 2014, Metonymy 2017) and co-editor of special issues of Canadian Review of American Studies 35.2 (2005) and TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly 1.4 (2014). The 2013 edition of Wanting in Arabic won the Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Fiction. At the University of Winnipeg she organized the conferences Writing Trans Genres: Emergent Literatures and Criticism and Decolonizing and Decriminalizing Trans Genres. Currently an assistant professor of Gender Studies at Queen’s University, she is a member of the editorial boards of TSQ, Eoagh, and Topia.

Hazel Jane Plante is a queer trans librarian, cat photographer, and writer. In a previous life, she co-founded a micro-press, co-edited a little literary journal, co-hosted a podcast, and released lo-fi albums under the name Sparse. She currently lives in Vancouver on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.

This event will be held in the upstairs gallery space at Massy Books. We regret that the venue is not wheelchair accessible.
