TURNSTONE AUTHORS AT 2015 THIN AIR FESTIVAL
Winnipeg, August 20, 2015 — Appearing at the Winnipeg International Writers Festival this September are two Turnstone Press authors, Armin Wiebe and K. I. Press.
ARMIN WIEBE, SEPTEMBER 22, 2015
September 22, 7:30 p.m., Armin Wiebe is featured on the Thin Air mainstage at Shaw Performing Arts Centre, as part of Other Times, Other Places, an exploration of memory and landscape.
ARMIN WIEBE, SEPTEMBER 23, 2015
Showcasing a selection of stories from Armin Wiebe's 30 year writing career, Armin's Shorts features the familiar fictitious Mennonite community of Gutenthal, re-imagined origin stories from the TÅ‚Ä±Ì¨choÌ¨ of the subarctic, and flights of pure fantasy set in modern day Winnipeg.
Funny enough to make your "grandmother sit up in her black trough coffin and laugh," and so gut wrenching you'll feel "that clunk in the heart, and that wrunsch in the stomach," master story teller, Armin Wiebe, presents a veritable smorgasbord of short stories that cover the gamut of human experience with a wry sense of humour, a stern sense of justice, and a warm and tender heart.
K. I. Press, September 24, 2015
Her work has received much critical praise and has been shortlisted for the Pat Lowther and ReLit Awards.
Launched in the spring of 2015, Exquisite Monsters is Karen's fourth collection of poetry. With vicious wit, K. I. Press pries open the intimacies of our lives. Fearless and weird, she splays open motherhood and mourning, laying them cheek by jowl next to biomechanical androids, and explosions of pop culture myths.
And with every copy of Exquisite Monsters, enjoy your very own phantasmagorical, gender defying, reconfigurable, exquisite monster making machine. Perforated for her/his pleasure.
