My name is Christopher DiRaddo. I’m the author of two books: The Geography of Pluto, which was published in 2014, and The Family Way, scheduled to come out in April 2021 (US: fall 2021).

I live in Montreal (Quebec, Canada), where I am also the founder and host of the Violet Hour reading series and book club. I also program LGBTQ literary events in the city, often in collaboration with Never Apart, Fierté Montreal and the Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival.

This site is a place for me to connect with readers and share my love of queer literature and the creative process. If that’s something you’re interested in, considering signing up for The Violet Letter, my monthly newsletter devoted to LGBTQ lit in Montreal and online (just sign up in the footer at the bottom of the page).

You can also write to me here, or follow me at one of the places below.
