Here's a good place for everyone to plan seeing each other at various Ten Thousand Roses events across Canada.

For anyone who can't make it to the March 8 book launch, I will be telling stories about the book at 1001 Nights

This is one of those hidden charms of Toronto. Every Friday night storytellers get together and share stories. I will be sharing some of mine this Friday March 4

Judes, that looks like just a plain awesome group in any case. I've never heard of it before, but I think I'll go to it sometime, either while you're there, or at some other point since I'll be at the March 8th launch.

Beltov, I'll be there! I'm visiting "the 'Peg" during March Break, and this is one event my cousin has booked for me. Excited!

Cool! Sending it off to all the feminists (female and male) I know here who read English.

I was hoping it would be at La Maison Parent-Roback but Leacock is even easier to access by métro and probably marginally more accessible to disabled people.

Because the event will be in English as the book is in English I thought it was better to have it at McGill rather than at La Maison Lea Robach. But once the book comes out in French I hope to have a launch of that book at Maison Lea Robach.

Any chance of coming to London?

Last week the library was closed-- someone had the book out-- but I'm sure it will be opened the rest of the spring.

I'm coming to London for the Congress formerly known as the Learneds, formerly known as the Stupids. There will be a panel in the Women's Studies section on May 31 and in the Socialist Studies on June 2. I'll post the info on babble when I get it. These are not exactly public events but you can get into them.

I'll be at the event in Victoria tonight at Bolen Books. I'll be wearing a "Soviet Canuckistan" button if any babblers want to connect.
I have to admit I haven't bought the book yet and I don't know if I'll actually buy the book right now. I want to financially support the publishing of books like this, but I've just been laid off (temporarily, thankfully) so am leery of making a non-essential purchase. I guess $24 for a trade paperback is not too far off the usual these days, but it is a little daunting. Well, there's always the library.
Anyway, maybe Judes will convince me to buy a copy tonight.

I was at the Victoria reading but didn't see you there, hawthorne. In any event, it was very entertaining and inspiring to hear Ms. Rebick speak, and I was happy to buy Ten Thousand Roses and get it autographed. I wish we'd had a better turnout, though it does mean more personal time for the ones that do show : )

Megumi,I was there, sat in the front row, which is probably why you didn't see my "Canuckistan" button. I decided not to buy a book so didn't stick around for the signing.
It was a great talk by Judy; she really brought some of the oral history to life, and I learned some new things. I only got involved in the movement in the late eighties so don't know much about the seventies and early eighties.
I am looking forward to reading, and buying, the book at some point this year.

I caught the last fifth or so of the four women, including Judy, at McNally tonight. It turns out that one of the contributors, Suzanna June Menzies, whose contribution appears on page twenty-three, is my neighbour. It's a small world (and so it should be).

There was an interesting exchange between Judy and an audience member who objected to Judy's decision to skip over (temporarily) the first male questioner and insist, rightly, on a question from another woman to begin the discussion portion of the event. I don't have a problem with such an approach and I was a little suprised with the objection. Where else, if not in the women's movement itself, should women be placed first in all discussions?

saw steffie but didn't get to chat as someone else monopolized her time. Too bad!

am working on a review as I am up to Varda Burstyn. I read on the half hour bus ride to work which somehow seems appropriate...

Beltov, check your PMs. Why didn't you come up to me?!?!?!?!?

I thought the whole thing was great. I was enthralled by the speakers, especially the woman representing Native women. That "exchange" was interesting, too -- it epitomised the way women must consciously and continually choose to support one another in ways that empower us. I thought Ms Rebick was divine. Delightful to meet you, my dear.

Now, back to my reading, so I can contribute to the "reviews" thread.

Well you've known me for about 30 years ... alas I was not able to make it; I hope Susan did show up. I had a HORRIBLE backache - better now. Too bad none of the Montréal babblers were able to show up!

rabble.ca is a useless waste of time.

Whenever someone posts something reasonable they are booted. See perfect example here:
