Annabel Lyon and Michael Turner help celebrate Taxi!

Vancouverites hail Helen Potrebenko’s classic Taxi!

35 years after Taxi! first revved up Vancouver literature, join us to celebrate this fine novel. Taxi!, published by Lazara Press, is a novel about a woman and a worker in a city. Our city, your city, your literature.

“In the 1970s and ’80s, Helen Potrebenko was a cherished and important Vancouver writer, well known for her early writing in Pedestal, Canada’s first women’s-liberation newspaper, and for her numerous books that included short stories, novels, poems and plays. Hers was the significant working-class urban feminist voice.” — Anakana Schofield, The Globe and Mail.

A diverse group of local writers will read excerpts and offer contributions, including Annabel Lyon, Clint Burnham, Julianne Okot Bitek, Penny Goldsmith, Marina Roy, Michael Turner, Anakana Schofield and Cúán Isamu. There will also be a Q&A with Helen Potrebenko.

Thursday April 29, 7:30 p.m.
Alma VanDusen and Peter Kaye Rooms, Lower Level
Central Library, 350 West Georgia St.
Admission is free. Seating is limited.
