Kristyn Dunnion, Jim Nason & Phoebe Tsang

Arsenal Pulp Press and Tightrope Books present this evening of readings from three acclaimed authors at McNally Robinson on October 6, from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Kristyn Dunnion is a self-professed “Lady punk warrior” and the author of the novels Big Big Sky, Missing Matthew, and Mosh Pit. She studied English Literature and Theatre at McGill University and earned a Masters Degree in English at the University of Guelph. She performs creeptastic art as Miss Kitty Galore, and is also the bass player for dykemetal heartthrobs, Heavy Filth. Audacious and loud, her latest work The Dirt Chronicles is a thrashing rejection of mainstream culture, and a combustible homage to class rebellion.

Jim Nason’s award-winning poems and stories have appeared in literary journals and anthologies across North America. He has published two books of poetry: If Lips Were as Red and The Fist of Remembering; Narcissus Unfolding is forthcoming. His debut novel, The Housekeeping Journals, was released to critical acclaim in 2007. 
His latest work, The Girl on the Escalator, is a collection of vivid and affecting stories about the brief moments that change lives.

Phoebe Tsang was born in Hong Kong, grew up in England and currently resides in Canada. She is the author of the poetry collection Contents of a Mermaid’s Purse. Phoebe’s poetry can be found in the anthologies 'Garden Variety' and 'Not a Muse'. She has been published in a wide range of journals and is the author of two chapbooks: Solitaires and To Kiss the Ground. A professional violinist, she is a multi-genre artist who holds a BSc in Architecture from the University of London.
