I could get used to this. Once more, my face graces the cover of a publication I’ve been reading for years. So thankful to the team at the Montreal Review of Books (otherwise known as the mRb) to include The Family Way (and me) so prominently in their summer edition. You can read the article here.
To celebrate the launch of the issue, we gathered at the beginning of the month at the Dépanneur Café on Bernard for an in-person event (watch it here). It was fun, but strange. People at tables could be unmasked, while those of us circulating wore ours, removing them ever so often to take a sip of wine. On stage, the three of us readers could take off our masks, but then would need to put them back on to rejoin those in the room. Still, it felt good to finally be at a literary event in person. Hopefully, this is just the beginning.
One more thing: Big thanks to Marlon Kuhnreich for taking such amazing photos. It was so much fun spending the afternoon getting to know him while trying to get the shot. You can check out his work here and here.
