Lauralyn Chow: Paper Teeth

This event will be held at the Fish Creek Library

Paper Teeth, through interconnected short stories, follows the lives of the Lees, a Canadian-Chinese family and their friends who reside in Edmonton, Alberta. While playing with time, from the 1960s and 70s up to the present, Paper Teeth creates a world of walking dolls, family car trips, fashion and frosty makeup, home renovations inspired by pop culture, and moving up to big, new houses. Paper Teeth's stories are fun, funny, and heart-warming journeys about the pursuit of identity and the crafting of home.

With the domestic tomfoolery of David Sedaris' Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and the humourous interplay of Thomas King's Green Grass, Running Water and Hiromi Goto's Chorus of Mushrooms, through deft observation and prismatic-voiced humour, including ironic asides, Lauralyn Chow reveals how family nourishes hope.
