Toronto Lit Up: Meat and Bone

2019-06-27T19:00:00.000-04:00 2019-06-27T21:00:00.000-04:00 Join [Conundrum Press]( and the Toronto International Festival of Authors in celebrating the release of Kat Verhoeven’s *Meat and Bone* through Toronto Lit Up! ### ABOUT THE BOOK A queer slice-of-life drama about dating and eating. Anne thinks that getting a new place with her two best friends will be a fresh start — then she meets Marshall, the girl downstairs. Their friendship will trigger body image issues she thought she had left behind. Meanwhile, Gwen tries out polyamorous dating and Jane practically moves into the gym, where she quietly works through her problems and those of her friends. In Meat and Bone, Kat Verhoeven winds these threads into an unflinching, beautifully illustrated exploration of how three Toronto women define themselves. ### ABOUT THE AUTHOR Kat Verhoeven is a Canadian cartoonist living in Toronto. She received a degree in illustration from OCAD University, where she made her first zines, including "The Artichoke.” Her first graphic novel, Towerkind, was nominated for a Doug Wright Award and an Ignatz Award, and her work has been featured in a range of publications including 3x3 Magazine, Broken Pencil, and Creative Quarterly. Her most recent book is Meat and Bone, a queer slice-of-life drama about dating and eating. CONFIRMED
