Looking for something warm to do on a cold winter’s day? Come by the inaugural INSPIRE! Toronto International Book Fair. Ann will be signing copies of her award-winning book The Family China at 1:30pm on Sunday, November 16. She’ll be at the Brick Books pavilion with Heather Cadsby and other Brick authors. Other featured events that day include readings by Sarah Richardson, Dalton Higgins, Amanda Lindhout, Halli Villegas and Molly Peacock.
Ann Shin is the WordFest 2013 Anne Green Award winner! She received the award for her book of poetry, The Family China, which was presented at WordFest as “multimedia performance culminating in a cathartic china-smashing that grappled rawly and musically with the profound messiness of human relations.”

Check out “Picking Up the Pieces: Ann Shin’s The Family China,“ the latest review of by Phoebe Wang in Arc Poetry Magazine.
“That Shin is also a filmmaker is evident in the book’s cinematic quality. Shin’s eye pans over the decades, zooming in on details such as her mother’s breath in her ear or the wind in the grass outside their old family farm.”
