It’s a takeover! In a special Vancouver Writers Fest event, celebrated multidisciplinary artist and author Vivek Shraya will be taking over our Facebook for readings, music, conversation and the virtual launch of her much-anticipated second novel, The Subtweet.

Exploring social media and female relationships, The Subtweet follows the lives of two emerging musicians and the catastrophic consequences a single tweet can cause. The Subtweet is a stirring examination of art in the modern era, a love letter to brown women, an authentic glimpse into the music industry, and a nuanced exploration of the promise and peril of being seen.

RSVP to this event early for a chance to win a copy of the book and submit a question you’d love answered during the live stream. Then, log in to Facebook on April 15 at 7pm PST for the show!
