"Erotic. Truthful. Cunning. Bless Karen Connelly for writing the life of a middle-aged woman with all the lusty bravura it deserves. I dare you to read The Change Room and not be simultaneously astonished and aroused.

Join us for a taste of three books that explore our need for connection and a conversation on getting what you want and getting what you need.   

Two decades after the release of her sensational, critically acclaimed collection Driving Men Mad, Elise Levine returns to fiction with Blue Field : When her friend Jane dies while exploring an underwater cave with her husband Rand, Marilyn takes up diving again, to honour—and outdo—her late friend. Marilyn drags Rand with her as she increasingly pushes herself far past her limits and skill level, endangering them both in their private underwater version of hell.

Life on Mars , Lori McNulty's wild debut collection of short fiction juxtaposes the absurd with the everyday, violence and discord with redemption and metamorphosis, and takes readers on an unexpected ride into the core of human existence.

Happily married, great career, mother of two. What more could a woman possibly want? Enter The Change Room , by Governor General's Award-winner Karen Connelly, and find out. Be ready to be shaken up, woken up, scandalized and deeply stirred.

Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
