Sheila Heti and Leanne Shapton in conversation for a double launch!
- Sheila Heti lives in Toronto, Canada, where she writes books and conducts interviews. She is the author of the story collection The Middle Stories, the novel Ticknor and she will be launching How Should A Person Be?, a bold interrogation into the possibility of a beautiful life. A novel of many identities, it is an autobiography of the mind, a postmodern self-help book, and a (mostly) fictionalized portrait of the artist as a young woman -- of two such artists, in fact.
- Leanne Shapton is an illustrator, author and publisher based in New York City. She published Was She Pretty? in November 2008 and Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry in February 2009. She will be launching a book of paintings for Drawn and Quarterly called Native Trees of Canada.
