The launch of About Face and transVersing is being celebrated at Glad Day Bookshop, 466 Church St., on Feb. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The free event, hosted by About Face editor Douglas Gosse, features readings by Perin Squires and About Face contributors.
About Face: Essays on Addictions, Recovery, Therapies, and Controversies seeks to broaden the conversation around addiction in Canada. It delves into the major categories of addiction: drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, video games, gambling, body dysmorphia, and eating disorders. With stories by those suffering from addictions, experts in the field, and service providers, this anthology is a far-reaching intervention into one of our country’s most rapidly expanding social issues.
Royalties from each copy of About Face sold will be donated to the Double Recovery Program offered by Progress Place, a recognized leader in psychosocial rehabilitation throughout Canada.
Originally produced for the stage by Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland and For the Love of Learning, transVersing features vibrant and necessary trans-youth voices.
