Metonymy Press and the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival cannot wait to host Glasgow-based author Shola von Reinhold for the launch of the "Canadian" edition of LOTE, with special guests Marlowe Granados and H Felix Chau Bradley.
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.
Throughout the season, Metonymy authors and editors will be holding events on small press publishing, the Canadian literary scene and more, and they will showcase their own work through readings and events. They will also hold office hours to engage in conversations on publishing, writing and more. Everyone is welcome!
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.
