1, 2, 3 Ladies is back at Feathers Pub, 962 Kingston Rd., on Saturday, Oct. 10.
The series gathers three female singer-songwriters, and this time features Civil Wray, the musical creation of Beacher Andrea de Boer, who may be known through her previous musical incarnation blueVenus, a previously featured ‘Lady’ and regular performer at Castro’s. Also on the bill are Danielle Beaudin, who has appeared previously at 1, 2, 3 Ladies, and Annie Bonsignore.
This fall edition of the concert series founded in 2013 is the fifth, and once again features Toronto-area women gifted with both pen and microphone, and usually talented with musical instruments too.
Admission is free and the music gets started at 9 p.m.
Ann Elizabeth Carson will launch her newest book at The Heliconian Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 21, alongside Nasreen Pejvack, author of Amity, and Zoë S. Roy, author of Calls Across the Pacific. The evening will feature readings, book signings, and there is no charge to attend.
Laundry Lines: A Memoir in Stories and Poems highlights the Toronto of the 1930s, 40s and 50s through a mix of prose and poetry. The stories included cover events that shaped the Beach author’s social and political views.
Carson mixes her writing, arts and psychotherapy training to compare the unique coded language and signs used by those on the Underground Railway with that of women’s hidden language in Laundry Lines, published by Inanna Publications and distributed by Brunswick Books.
Carson is the author of a number of books of poetry and prose, including Shadows Light, My Grandmother’s Hair, The Risks of Remembrance and We All Become Stories.
The launch will be held at 6 p.m. at The Heliconian Hall, 35 Hazelton Ave. For more information on the launch, check the event listings at inanna.ca.
