CANCELLED – Making Love with the Land: Joshua Whitehead
October 02 at 1pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED: We regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. We hope to welcome Joshua Whitehead to our stage another time in the future, and apologize for any disappointment and inconvenience caused by this cancellation. Ticket holders will be refunded.
Following his acclaimed Giller-Longlisted debut novel, Jonny Appleseed, Joshua Whitehead’s new book of non-fiction explores indigeneity, queerness, language and land. A hybrid of writing formats, including essays, notes, memoir and confessions, Making Love with the Land is a vulnerable, heart wrenching account of what it means to live and write as a queer Indigenous person. Whitehead illuminates the current cultural moment in Canada in which everyone – Indigenous and non-Indigenous – is navigating new ideas about how the land shapes us, our ideas, our histories and our bodies.
