Bluebird Encounters with Molly Peacock
Inspired by the themes of Michèle Karch-Ackerman's exhibition, the Bluebird Dress Factory, the event considers how we represent the deceased and the responsibility of sharing their voices. Each of two Bluebird Encounters installments features an intimate conversation with a leading Canadian female writer who has dared to tackle this challenge in their own career as well as a performance of an excerpt from their work.

Adapted and performed by Madeleine Brown
Directed by Karthy Chin

Tickets: $15

Doors open: 6:30 pm

The show runs: 7 pm  8 pm

The exhibit will be open to visitors before and after the show.

Refreshments will be available for purchase.



About Molly Peacock:

Biographer and poet Molly Peacock  has often tackled the challenge of releasing the voices of women of the past, first in her memoir, Paradise, Piece by Piece, then in her best-selling biography The Paper Garden:  Mrs. Delany Begins Her Lifes Work at 72, as well as in her book of poems, The Analyst.  Now she is working on The Flower Diary of Mary Hiester Reid:  Her Paintings, Her Husband, and Her Rival, about another almost silenced artist of the 19th-century.  Molly Peacock inaugurated The Best Canadian Poetry series and is one of the subjects of two documentary films about womens choices not to have children.  Her biography of Mrs. Delany was named a Book of the Year by The Globe and Mail, The Economist, Booklist, The London Evening Standard, The Sunday Telegraph, and The Irish Times.
