Carmen Aguirre Visits Octopus Books!

On Wednesday, January 31 2013 at Noon, author, actor and playwright Carmen Aguirre brings her stories of life, love and revolution to Octopus Books in Ottawa, for a special lunchtime discussion and launch of Blue Box.

It’s a story of terror, romance, and abandon that takes us from the dangerous mountain passes of Chile to the perilous roller coasters of Hollywood; from an ardent love affair with a TV star, to a passionate love for a revolution that strove to change an entire nation.

Carmen’s memoir, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter (D&M), won the 2012 CBC Canada Reads competition.
