AX Reading and Workshop Series ~ Sean Michaels

  • January 17, 2019
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Launch of the new AX Reading and Workshop Series

Join us at AX on Thursday, January 17 at 7:00 p.m. as we welcome award-winning Canadian author Sean Michaels for the first event in our new reading and workshop series. 


Sean will read from his Giller Prize winning novel, Us Conductors, a story inspired by the lives of inventor Léon Theremin and musician Clara Rockmore. 

Joining Sean is Sonya Malaborza, who will moderate a discussion after the reading. Sean will also demonstrate the other-worldly sounds of the theremin — a unique musical instrument controlled without physical contact. 

This event is FREE, thanks in part to a grant from the province.
