Location: People's Co-Op Bookstore, 1391 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC
He’s fresh from his triumphs at Winnipeg’s Thin Air Festival, and he’s preparing for his burly struggles in the belly of the Ontarian whale, at Different Drummer Books in Burlington, alongside Gary Barwin, on October 8th, at 7pm. In the meantime, our own, modern day, Jewish-Canadian Balzac will honour the West Coast with his presence at the end of the week.
Michael Tregebov, pen and skates in hand, hand to his chest, his voice loaned to the CBC for three shows and counting (Weekend Morning, The Next Chapter, and Here & Now), will be in Vancouver to spiel and schmooze about his third and newest novel, Shot Rock: the tale of Blackie Timmerman and his curled and curling troubles.
You’ll be able to spot Michael, himself already spotted—whether by Catalan sun or Winnipegerian praise—at The People’s Coop Bookstore, on Friday, October 4th, at 7pm. Expect shtick, curling sticks, and Trotskyite (-ist?) undertones. As well as sundry copies of his novel, available to purchase in exchange for any form of gelt, including but not limited to jokes and 1970s regalia.
