Bound in Blood and Skin: Novel Launch featuring: Nicholas Lyons, Garth Martens, Tom Fowler , Pam Stewart @ Copper Owl Jan 29 2017
2000 - 2300
Free
Nicholas Lyons started work on this novel ten years ago, shortly after graduating with distinction in English from the University of Calgary. The first two chapters came to him in a day and he was immediately very excited by their potential. He has had the good fortune, throughout these five years to have former professor, now friend, A. Mary Murphy as a mentor. Mary, a published poet, professional writing consultant and recipient of several writing grants, has helped him at every stage of the writing process, offering indispensable advice and critique. When he read the first two chapters to her, she said, confidently, that they were the seeds of what would be his first novel; as always, she was right. A strange and complex novel has indeed grown from the seeds of the first chapters. The novel might best be described as magical realism. Weighing in at approximately 100, 000 words, th... more...

Thu. February 9th  Strike A Pose Dance Party DJ Nova Jade* Greene

Strike A Pose Dance Party: DJ Nova Jade* Greene @ Copper Owl Feb 9 2017During the AIDS crisis in the 1990’s seven young dancers joined pop star Madonna on her most controversial world tour, Blond Ambition. These flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world to be their own unique selves. What wasn’t known then was that three of these dancers had been diagnosed with HIV before they joined the tour and one of the seven would die from AIDS-related complications in 1995. The six surviving dancer’s stories became the narrative of a new follow up documentary to “Truth or Dare” called “Strike a Pose” which will be screening on February 9th at the Vic Theatre as part of the Victoria Film Festival. To honour their spirit of freedom and joy in the face of adversity we are throwing an after party following the showing of “Strike a Pose”. We invite you to come to our “Strike a Pose Dance Party” at the Co... more...
