Please join us for the launch of On the Other Side(s) of 150, edited by Linda Morra and Sarah Henzi. The presentation will feature a reading and talk by award-winning author Shani Mootoo.

“On the Other Side(s) of 150 explores the different literary, historical and cultural legacies of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations. It asks vital questions about the ways that histories and stories have been suppressed and invites consideration about what happens once a commemorative moment has passed.” (Wilfrid Laurier Press)
