Reading: Anna Camilleri

This is gonna be good.

Anna Camilleri has been hailed as a "tough, visceral and funny" (Atlanta Journal Constitution) "cultural agitator and fab femme" (Now Magazine. She is the author of I Am a Red Dress: Incantations on a Grandmother, a Mother and a Daughter (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2004), editor of Red Light: Superheroes, Saints and Sluts (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2005) , co-author of Boys Like Her: Transfictions (Press Gang Publishers, 1998 ), and co-editor of Brazen Femme: Queering Femininity (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2002).

Her writing has been alternately described as "brave and necessary" (Books in Canada ); "provocative and evocative" (Xtra); "genuine and unflinching," and as "speaking eloquently of the need for civil rights for all of us" (Lambda Book Report). She is currently writing a new performance titled State of the Queer Nation , and a novel.

Anna will be reading at Venus Envy (320 Lisgar) on Saturday July 8th at 8pm.
