Vancouver Writers Festival - In-Between Days: Teva Harrison in Conversation with Shaena Lambert

Writer and graphic artist Teva Harrison was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer at the age of 37. She started to draw comics as one way to fight back against the disease, and find the humour and absurdity in it. She added short personal essays, and In-Between Days was born. In it she balances the sadness of cancer with everyday acts of hope and wonder. Joseph Boyden calls her book “sly and brutal and funny and crushing.” Since the book was published in April, she’s been touring Canada, expanding the breast cancer conversation and helping others living with cancer feel less alone. It’s working. Spend an afternoon with an inspiring, honest and funny woman who really knows the difference between surviving and living.

Vancouver Writers Festival - Learning From Life

Tom Robbins once said, “People write memoirs because they lack the imagination to make things up.” But sometimes telling the truth is just as creative as fiction. Ivan Coyote’s Tomboy Survival Guide is the personal tale of the triumphs and terrors of a “young butch”—told with the heartfelt wit that only Coyote can deliver. Craig Davidson opens up about his year of driving a school bus for a group of disabled children, changing his life and teaching him lessons he didn’t know he needed to learn.Teva Harrison’s comic illustrations and personal essays chronicle how she lives with terminal breast cancer, and finds that sharing the hard parts of her life makes it easier. And Noah Richler recounts his time on the campaign trail. Turns out running for office can be devastatingly funny.
