Please join us at READ Books on Thursday, November 15 at 7pm for the launch of Aja Moore’s hotwheel (Metatron Press), with additional readings by Amna Elnour, Tin Lorica, and Beni Xiao.

Aja Moore’s debut collection of poetry is awash in sincerity and the ways in which we simultaneously crave, doubt, avoid, and totally disparage it. hotwheel, in turn, reveals its precious life-affirming conviction, despite its incertitude—or precisely because of it.

Aja Moore is a graduate of the University of British Columbia. She has volunteered with the B.C. Book Prizes, Summer Literary Seminars, and as a Poetry Editor for PRISM International. hotwheel is her first book.

Amna Elnour is a writer and DJ. She attributes her difficulty with being on time to either her astrological sign or her ethnicity, depending on her mood.

Tin Lorica is an emerging poet and comedian who resides in East Vancouver. They are an Aries sun with a Cancer moon. They are your local grumpy barista. They have recently re-discovered the healing powers of shit-talking in Tagalog.

Beni Xiao is dead, oh my god.
