1218 Cartwright St.

Leanne Dunic is a multidisciplinary artist, musician and writer whose debut book, To Love the Coming End, has defied categorization—lyric novel or poetic prose or …? Slipping between locales in Japan, Singapore and Canada, it’s the fictional account of a disillusioned author grappling with the loss of a loved one and the meaning of natural disasters. “I’m sorry that I suffer the loss of one when, at every moment, a breath is another’s last.” After perusing this slim volume, the Open Book Art Collective will produce original paintings, sculptures and multi-media works based on To Love the Coming End that will form a backdrop for Dunic’s reading. And then, in true multidisciplinary form, join singer/guitarist Dunic and her band The Deep Cove for a party at Performance Works.
