A bit about them:Heather Haley is a Vancouver writer, singer, and videopoetry pioneer. A member of the punk band, the 45s, and the originator of the all-female group, the Zellots, Haley’s edgy style stems in part, from her days in the Los Angeles underground music scene. Known for pushing boundaries by creatively integrating disciplines, genres and media, she published “The Edgewise Café,” one of Canada’s first electronic literary magazines and as AURAL released CDs of spoken word song, “Princess Nut” and “Surfing Season.” She is the author of poetry collections: “Sideways,” “Three Blocks West of Wonderland,” “Skookum Raven” and a novel, “The Town Slut’s Daughter.” Her work has toured Canada, the US and Europe and appeared in a wide range of periodicals and anthologies. Committed to honesty, feeling, craft and a sense of the absurd, Haley continues to ask all the tough questions “a nice girl’s not supposed to ask” and performs in indie folk duo, The Pluviophiles.
Masks are strongly encouraged, but the venue is a restaurant and members of the audience will be maskless.
