On Jan. 23, 2022, from 5:30-7pm PST, join this One-Time Intimate Talk with Callum Angus.
We are thrilled to have Callum Angus as one of our one-time intimate talks for our 2021 Community Fundraiser. By purchasing a seat here to this talk on Jan. 23, 2022, you’ll be receiving an autographed copy of A Natural History of Transition, which was published in April 2021 by Metonymy Press, and you’ll be saving yourself a seat for this 90-minute virtual, intimate conversation facilitated by The Seventh Wave. While you can read more about Callum below or on his site here, there’s so much to be said about his work.
“Callum Angus is one of the younger writers I’m most excited by, with a mind full of marvels and an ear to match,” writes Garth Greenwell.
In speaking about Callum’s book, A Natural History of Transition, Garth continues: “Every story surprises; every sentence strives gorgeously toward music. This is writing as transition, as entrancement, as transcendence.” There is so much to experience in Cal’s words, which are worlds. “His characters are simply human, flawed and imperfect, but wholly alive in their own way,” writes Cleo Peterson. “To be offered the diversity of transgender experiences and bodies, when so often we are forced to take what we are given, is a delightful treat.”
There are only 14 available seats for purchase for this one-time intimate talk.
