B&D will be once more at the fantastic Queer Between the Covers, Montreal queer book fair, this coming Saturday, August 18, in the Montreal Gay Village.
We will have Eloisa Aquino's new butch dyke zine with a mini-bio of Judith Butler and also Jenny Lin's Skinny Leg in its two incarnations: hardcover pop-up and softcover zine.
Queer Between the Covers is a exciting event in Montreal, part of the alternative Pride Pervers-Cité. There are tones of interesting materials, cool events, and a fun vibe. From their website:
Queer Between the Covers aims to provide access to queer materials that are otherwise unavailable in the city, as well as draw attention to the role of queer bookstores in providing community space and supporting queer cultural production.
Jenny Lin is launching her new pop-up book Skinny Leg during the conference Comics and Medicine: Navigating the Margins, in Toronto. Lin's book narrates her experience of being run over by a truck while biking and the subsequent recuperation, blending clinical descriptions with personal accounts. According to Lin, "what is revealed is the strangeness and banality of the
experience as well as the mutability of memory."
