This perfect pairing of two Coach House Press superstars, André Alexis and Suzette Mayr, only gets tastier with the addition of an exclusive sake tasting, curated by Lonely Mouth Bar's Amanda Jansen. Sit back and enjoy four premium pours of Japan’s finest, along with an insider’s discussion of two brilliant new novels: Alexis’ genre-bending, philosophically sophisticated Ring and Mayr’s The Sleeping Car Porter, in which she brings to life a long-neglected part of Black and queer histories. 

This 90-minute experience includes sushi to wash down the exceptional sake, an audience Q&A, and book signing. 

Calgary's Lonely Mouth is a place where tradition meets innovation. They offer a carefree and interactive dining experience, featuring a dynamic and playful menu with modern and energetic flavours. Their knowledgeable and encouraging sake experts can guide you through our extensive and evolving menu (over 40 sakes of different grades and styles from all over the country), and their team is eager to share their knowledge, enthusiasm, and how easily saké pairs with food. 

This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Sept. 29 – Oct. 6, 2022. Connect with 60+ of the world’s most generous writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
