Something Fierce – by Carmen Aguirre

This coming Friday at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore (and livestreamed at www.facingout.ca) will be a combination of the things FacingOut is about – art and activism.

Join us as Carmen Aguirre launches her book Something Fierce about her life, and what a life it has been so far!

Today, Carmen Aguirre lives in Vancouver and is writer and theatre-based artist.  But when she was 11 her family packed up and moved back to the South America they had fled, so that her parents could join the underground resistance. When Carmen was 18 she joined the underground resistance against the Pinochet regime herself.

This book is Something Fierce, as it chronicles Carmen Aguirre’s teenage life amid terror.

Join us on Friday June 3rd from 6:30 – 8:30pm EST (7pm for the livestream) as we help her launch the book. She will be reading and taking questions, and of course, celebrating!
