Join Maureen Medved for the Winnipeg launch of Black Star (Anvil Press).

This event is free and open to the public.

Del Hanks is on the verge of academic tenure, but at forty she’s also perched on the precipice of either the beginning or the end of the rest of her life. Black Star is a dark comedy, both bitingly funny and transgressive, an unflinching and unsentimental exploration of the female experience, academia, and the idea of power that burns in the mind as white as acid. Medved’s new novel is a searing critique of a world we all know too well, one of sexual exploitation, manipulation, and the subtle machinations of power that Black Star filters through the lens of academia. It is at once poetic, tragic, disturbing and funny.

Maureen Medved is a novelist, screenwriter, and playwright as well as an Associate Professor in the Creative Writing Program at the University of British Columbia. Her debut novel, The Tracey Fragments, was published by House of Anansi Press, and Maureen’s screen adaptation (directed by Bruce MacDonald and starring Ellen Page) opened the Panorama program of the 57th annual Berlin International Film Festival and won the Manfred Salzgeber Prize. In 2009, Medved received the Artistic Achievement Award from Women in Film and Television, Vancouver. Medved lives in Vancouver and is currently completing a third novel.
