Book launch for The Heart Begins Here.
Join author Jacqueline Dumas for the launch of her new novel. The Heart Begins Here is in the voice of a feminist bookstore owner coming out and trying to hold it all together. The story takes place in a western Canadian city in the shadow of the disturbing political climate that followed the 9-11 attacks in 2001. Along with drastic changes in the book industry, Sara must contend with her disintegrating seven-year relationship with Wanda, as well as a mother who refuses to accept her daughter’s lesbianism.The novel explores themes of love and loss, of the lingering effects of childhood, of personal and societal homophobia, of misogyny, and most notably: the challenge of integrating the personal with the political.
