Join local queer authors Carellin Brooks and Michael V. Smith as they read from their new works, One Hundred Days of Rain and My Body Is Yours. Brooks’ novel covers the depressing aftermath of a love gone sour, as chronicled in a hundred different sorts of the city’s noted downpours. Smith chronicles a different sort of decline – his father’s – and simultaneously explores the often-compulsive sexuality that brings him over and over to the city’s outdoor spaces. Together, both writers trace the erratic meanderings of the human heart, enmeshed in their mutual fierce love for a Vancouver that doesn’t quite fit into the usual postcard imagery.
