Sadly, due to extenuating circumstances, Tanya Tagaq is unable to be in Edmonton on October 4th, and her event at Metro Cinema tomorrow has been canceled. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
BUT, there is some good news: To those who have already purchased tickets, our pals at the UP+Downtown Festival will honour your LitFest tickets at their concert with Tanya Tagaq on Friday, October 5 at McDougall United Church, 7:45PM. If you have purchased a copy of Split Tooth with your Oct 4 ticket, the book will be available at the concert as well.
Tanya will perform a reading from her book as part of the concert, and the show will also feature a performance by Too Attached (with Vivek Shraya—also a LitFest author!—and her sibling Shamik Bilgi).
If you are unable to make it to Friday’s concert, let us know and we can refund your ticket or apply it to another upcoming LitFest event—whichever works best for you! If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to get in touch by replying to this email, or calling our office at 780 498 2500.
Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, and thank you for your understanding.
The LitFest Team
