Oct 14 | Maintenance Book Launch: Full Throttle Platinum Edition
Rob Benvie is known to most as a musician -- a founding member of Thrush Hermit and a current member of The Dears -- but Maintenance is his second novel (after 2005's Safety of War, also published by Coach House). Maintenance offers a cynical, humourous look at pre-Y2K anxiety, work-out culture, global migration and the taut dynamics of late-twentieth-century family life.
On Friday, October 14, Benvie will launch his book at Double Double Land (209 Augusta Avenue) with a reading, as well as a musical performances by the Maintenance Band (featuring Matt Murphy of The Super Friendz, Mike Leblanc and Ian McGettigan) and Choir! Choir! Choir!, singing hits from 1999.
Admission is free. Bring $$ for booze and books.
