Event Forecast: Shauna Singh Baldwin at Boswell on Monday, December 12, 7 pm

Monday, December 12, 2016, 7 pm, at Boswell:
Shauna Singh Baldwin, author of Reluctant Rebellions: New and Selected Nonfiction.

In fifteen speeches and essays written between 2001 and 2015, Shauna Singh Baldwin brings a new perspective and voice to Canadian public discourse. Offering examples from her personal journey as a writer and a South Asian woman who needs to "become as hyphenated as possible," Baldwin transcends homogenized national identities.

From Hugh Johnston at Simon Fraser University: "A wonderfully illuminating and personal exploration of cultural, racial, religious and gender perspectives… [Shauna Singh Baldwin] has an intimate knowledge of multiple worlds, which she describes with insight and sympathy. The essays and addresses in this book, by extending and amplifying her earlier writing, make invaluable and enlightening companions to her fiction.”

Shauna Singh Baldwin talks about her new collection of nonfiction, Reluctant Rebellions, on Milwaukee Public Radio's Lake Effect. Mitch Teich discusses the idea of becoming as hyphenated as possible with Baldwin.

And don't forget, we have copies for sale of Reluctant Rebellions!
