ACC Presents: Things That Used to Matter - The Author Talk

-

On Tuesday, February 21, meet the contributors to Things That Used To Matter, the latest book published by The Ginger Press.

Anthologist Joan Beecroft has collected essays from 32 local writers which explore their feelings about what used to be important, and no longer is. Particularly impacted by the pandemic, the things documented include everything from not wearing makeup and jewellery during the mask-up, to life challenges such as losing weight, and leaving a spouse.

Contributors to Things That Used To Matter include: Margaret Stewart Anderson, Cornelia Baines, Sylvia Bell, Janet Boyle-Jackson, Jill McFadden Bradley, Norah Brown, Jan Chamberlain, Fely Clarke, Amanda Crocker, Thomas Fairbairn, Jeff Feltis, Liz Head, Terri Hope, Jean Koroway, Jane [last name withheld], Andrée Levie-Warrilow, Caroline Menzies, Bea Miller, Miranda Miller, David Morris, Rachel Oliver, Lee Pollard, Dave Robinson, Michelle Scobie, Richard-Yves Sitoski, Teen Sivell, Nancy Stewart, Deene Surreal, Harsh Vardhan, Liz Willmott, Lynn Wyvill, and Ms X.

In her Foreword to Things That Used To Matter, Janet Glasspool writes: “This is a book of powerful resilience and brave changes in direction. In reflecting on what doesn’t matter, the writers come to deep understandings of who they are and what it means to exist. Joan Beecroft has collected stories that connect people and build understanding. In identifying things that no longer matter, this writing reveals what matters most.”

Join us at 7pm in the L.E. Shore Gallery for this author talk, where several contributors of Things That Used to Matter will be present. Copies of the book ($24.95) will be available for purchase. You can also purchase a copy direct from  Ginger Press.
