Introducing Sierra Skye Gemma as Swoon’s new co-curator and lover of literature!

Exciting news!


Swoon Lovers Ruth & Sierra Sierra Skye Gemma joins Ruth Daniell to create the new core team for Swoon: A Reading Series on Love & Desire!

The amazing and talented two-time novelist Jeffrey Ricker, co-host for Swoon: Spring 2014, has had to return to his life and love in St. Louis, Missouri, and Vancouver will miss him. Especially Swoon. Especially me. But I am thrilled to let you know that while Jeffrey can’t host Swoon in person anymore, he’s agreed to continue doing some long-distance work for Swoon in the form of his wonderful graphic design. Thank you, Jeffrey, for all that you have done and continue to do for Swoon. It’s clearly a labour of love.

Taking up the co-host reins is the wonderful Sierra Skye Gemma! For those of you who were at Swoon: Spring 2014,  you’ll remember Sierra for her hilarious and moving nonfiction essay about teaching sex…
