Book Discussion and Signing
with Donna Decker
Wednesday, September 28th
6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Donna Decker

Dancing in Red Shoes Will Kill You is a winner of the IPPY Silver Medal for Canada-East – Best Regional Fiction and is a 2016 International Book Awards Finalist for Women's Issues.

Through the braided narratives of three spirited characters, the novel bears witness to the infamous crime that metastasized uber-civilized Montreal, the "Montreal Massacre," when on December 6, 1989, fourteen female engineering students were murdered in their classrooms.Set in that tragic historic moment, on two college campuses fraught with gendered antagonisms, this novel tells the story of the victims, following the imagined lives of these women as they happen headlong into the December 6 tragedy -- a story disarmingly accurate that explores the profundity of deepest love and unimaginable loss.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
