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.
