On January 15, 2016 join Angie Abdou with author Raziel Reid as they discuss his award winning first novel When Everything Feels Like the Movies. At the Fernie Heritage Library. These events are free and open to the public. Doors open at 7pm.
Reid’s novel is a coming-of-age story about gay teenager Jude, who, despite being tormented and bullied, insists on being true to himself: flamboyant, fashion-loving and celebrity-obsessed.
When Everything Feels like the Movies won the 2014 Governor General’s Award for English-language children’s literature, but it also sparked controversy, with some saying the content is too graphic for a young audience.
