Vancouver

The Capilano Review presents Snacking Off with Aisha Sasha John

Where: Arts Factory Society, 281 Industrial Avenue, Vancouver, BC

When: 2-4pm

More information: The Capilano Review presents Snacking Off with Aisha Sasha John, author of THOU, for an afternoon writing/making workshop on snacking.

"There is a relationship-is there not-between what goes in and what comes out. Coffee, "breakfast," lunch, snack. Chips, brunch, beer, cheese. We're going to get together, make and tell of our best snacks, and then talk about how they mean. It's obvious that we eat the way we live and that we write the way we eat – but how exactly? Let us be for each other mirrors. Let us gather; let us read each other's snacks."

$10 for a spot at the snack table and a digital edition of TCR's Fall issue. Write to  contact@thecapilanoreview.ca as soon as possible to reserve a seat. Space limited!
