    Where We're Going, We Don't Need Roads
    Thursday 18 September, Evening Event
    Sybil Lamb and Casey Plett are coming to your town!

    This fall the best new transgender fiction is going on a road trip! Topside Press authors Casey Plett (author of A Safe Girl To Love) and Sybil Lamb (author of I’ve Got A Time Bomb) will be crisscrossing Canada and the United-States, visiting cafes, bookshops, libraries, and maybe even that punk house round the corner. And at every turn they’ll be reading with the most exciting up-and-coming and established trans and queer writers from your area. 

    This isn’t just a book tour, it’s a movement. And these are events you won’t easily forget. Find out more about it at topsidepress.com/tour.

    In CALGARY you can catch them performing at LOFT 112 on SEPTEMBER 18th at 7pm. As well as Casey and Sybil, amazing local authors 

    Kym Nacita
    Syd Peacock

    will be performing at this reading. Come see them, and tell all your friends. And if you’re a trans writer and you want to be involved, please contact cat@topsidepress.com.

    The venue is wheelchair accessible through the front lobby (and has gender-inclusive bathrooms).

    The event is being sponsored in part by the Mount Royal English students club.
