Angie Abdou (a 2011 Canada Reads finalist for her novel The Bone Cage) launches Between, a gutsy new novel that satirizes love, marriage, and parenthood through portraits of two women: Vero, an upper-middle-class mother and wife and Ligaya, the international nanny who works in her home. http://www.arsenalpulp.com/bookinfo.php?index=407

"Abdou has stared fraught subject matter in the face and handled it with grace and humour. Her refreshing novel sympathetically reveals women as they are, flaws and all." --Quill & Quire

Brecken Hancock reads from her acclaimed debut book, Broom Broom, a defiantly feminist poetry collection that seductively plumbs the depths of the bathing evolution, doppelgangers, the Kraken, and the minutiae of family with all its tragic misgivings. http://www.chbooks.com/catalogue/broom-broom

Both authors are available for interview and commentary. Review copies are available for media upon request.
