Join us for the Salt Spring Island launch of the provocative and witty new book “In the Flesh: Twenty Writers Explore the Body”. This collection of essays, edited by Kathy Page and Lynne Van Luven, is an intelligent and insightful look at how we think about -and live within -our flesh. Each author’s essay focuses on one part of the body, and explores its function, its meanings, and the role it has played in the person’s life. As the book reveals — It’s complicated : our bodies bring us pleasure and pain, and our feelings for them range from wonder to hostility and back again.
Join Kathy Page, Brian Brett, Richard Steel and Lorna Crozier and others as they share their essays on one part of the body. Free event. Refreshments will be served.
