Here’s the update we said we would post. Re-reading the Riot Act by leannej is the first in a series of new books from UNIT/PITT and Publication Studio Vancouver, emerging from the series Rereading The Riot Act, curated by Anakana Schofield. (The same series won UNIT/PITT a mention in The London Review of Books a few weeks back.)
leannej’s book is a sort of companion piece to the performance she did at the Rereading The Riot Act II cabaret — interwoven stories of the history of protest in Vancouver, played out in the lives of five different people living through five different flashpoints.
If you can’t make it to the launch, you can purchase the book online.
