Breakdown Book Tour: Amber Dawn, Jillian Christmas, and Vivek Shraya


March 17/20 update: Due to concerns over Covid-19, we regret that the Breakdown Book Tour has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule at least some of these events at the appropriate time.

 

Powerhouse writers Amber Dawn, Jillian Christmas, and Vivek Shraya are joining forces for the Breakdown Book Tour taking place in selected cities across Canada in April and May!

How does an artist breakthrough without breaking down? Three outspoken femme writers, Vivek Shraya, Amber Dawn and Jillian Christmas, voice themes of industry and community pressure, lateral violences, hard-won friendships and intergenerational healing. BREAKDOWN book tour is part cultural criticism, part resistance and wholy a celebration of narrative, verse and song.

Amber Dawn's latest book is My Art Is Killing Me and Other Poems. Jillian's debut poetry collection is The Gospel of Breaking. And Vivek's new novel is The Subtweet (ECW Press).
