Saison 1

6. Family

TV BROADCAST:
Saturday at 5:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

This week, join host Shelley Pomerance when two Montreal novelists talk about family, chosen and biological. “Friendships are the bedrock of a lot of gay and queer families”, says Christopher DiRaddo, “and I don't think that's always seen as legitimate as other forms of family, so I really wanted to showcase that in my book.” Friends also take on family roles in the new novel by Caribbean-Canadian novelist H. Nigel Thomas.

Guest(s) : H. Nigel Thomas, Author Christopher DiRaddo, Author Rebecca Lloyd, Director, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore Piedad Saenz, Children's Bookseller, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore
