SMOL Fair is an alternative book fair which will be 'live' from March 19 to 26, 2022. In addition to featuring small presses, they will be organizing readings and opportunities for readers to connect with authors and publishers.
On Friday, October 28 at 6pm, join Massy Arts Society, Massy Books and Metonymy Press for a celebration of authors and their latest works including: H. Felix Chau Bradley and Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch. Exploring new queer intimacy (and anarchy!) and mapping trans identity through the immensity of experience felt in one body, these readings offer a riot within us that both affirms and uncovers. The two are joined by guest reader, Amber Dawn.
Four acclaimed trans authors based in Canada and New York read from their latest works: H. Felix Chau Bradley reads from Personal Attention Roleplay; River Halen reads from Dream Rooms; Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch reads from The Good Arabs; Jeanne Thornton reads from Summer Fun and/or new work. Personal Attention Roleplay is praised by Casey Plett as “a perfect album of stories”; Dream Rooms is described by Gail Scott as “a marvelous confection of the author’s definition of ‘revolution’”; and The Good Arabs as “bold and deeply necessary” by Liz Howard. Summer Fun won the 2022 Lambda Award for transgender fiction.
