Hi lovelies! This is kind of an exciting time for me! I am in the midst of launching my new book, YOU ARE A KITTEN! The final book in my trilogy of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style books from the POV of a cat. But I am also continuing to put on my intimate & odd events. A couple weeks ago we had the best turnout ever for the Montreal Slowdance, which touched my heart. And in the picture above, this is what it looks like to work on the prototype for a slipcase, which I've never had to do before, and which is a charming challenge. My publisher tells me that a possible box set will be available late next year, so I'm trying to work through its logistical problems. I know it doesn't look like much right now. The fact is, things tend to look like shit for a long time until they don't. Just look at me in high school. Ba dum pssh!

Anyway, haha, without further ado, here are the...

Saturday, NOV 7, 2015 at the DOVERCOURT HOUSE

RSVP here:

Black heart (cards)Black heart (cards)Black heart (cards) You are cordially invited to Toronto's QUEER SLOWDANCE! - FOLLOWEEN Edition! Black heart (cards)Black heart (cards)Black heart (cards)

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Toronto Queer Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)

It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.

Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. Since this is our FOLLOWEEN Edition (ie. the weekend that follows Halloween), a costume of some kind would be fucking amazing.

Finally, you do not have to be queer to attend this party, but you must have an open mind, an open heart, and have open arms. Do keep in mind that many of our attendees fall within the LGBTTIQ continuum and may or may not be interested in dancing with the 'opposite' sex, so if you are stridently & adamantly straight, this may not be the most receptive community for you.


Dovercourt house
805 Dovercourt Rd. (1 block North of Bloor, 3 blks. west of Ossington)
Saturday, Nov 7, 2015
Doors at 9:30, Dance from 10 PM - 3 AM.
$10 admission includes your Dancecard-booklet!

Regretfully, the Dovercourt House is not wheelchair-accessible.



Saturday & Sunday, Nov. 14 & 15


THIS IS NOT MY EVENT! This is an annual fair in Montreal that focusses on small-press prints and zines and is awesome and amazing and has been going on for more than ten years and I always have a little table where I sell my random things and sign books if people want and it's nice just to sit all day and talk to your neighbours and get samosas and beers from the kitchen. Anyway, I will be there. Will you?


If you know of folks who like these weird events and who might want to subscribe to this newsletter, please send them this link:

This email list will become more and more important because every month, Facebook is REDUCING the number of invites I can personally send to folks on my friends list. They are reducing it every month because they are trying to turn a profit with their PAGES system, where they charge you so that your posts will show up in people's feeds. Already I have Facebook friends who aren't getting invites. I don't begrudge Facebook trying to turn a profit, but it's disappointing when they purposefully take away features and abilities to then try to charge you for them somewhere else.

Thanks to you for being part of this email list! It helps a lot!

CANCELLED STRIP SPELLING BEE IN TORONTO: So, in my "sneak peek" section (below) I usually put upcoming dates that I haven't made an event page for. Anyway, for a long time I had Nov. 6 marked for a Strip Spelling Bee in Toronto. Unfortunately there was some miscommunication between myself and the venue and I got lost in the shuffle! So if you marked that date in your calendar, sadly I must ask you to erase it. I seldom cancel events. It's not my style and it upsets me that I have to. I am taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen again in the future. Thanks for understanding! 


Black heart (cards) SNEAK PEEK @ UPCOMING EVENTS further into 2015...

Save the Date! Events and dates are subject to change, but realistically, in all likelihood, won't.





Thank you SO MUCH for coming out and supporting quirky events this past year! We can only continue to put on these intimate and odd experimental events because you come out and you tell your friends what wacky thing you did over the weekend and they were intrigued enough to come to the next one. So thank you.



CHAT PERDU PRODUCTIONS creates stimulating, quirky, and all-natural events in Montreal & Toronto. We like to put on events that are participatory and lovely. Rather than ironic cool, we are after cat-belly warm. We like it when the people who "attend" are also the people who "perform". We see events as little experiments. We don't know what will happen & we do them to find out. The ultimate goal of everything is for folks to forge new friendships & to make life a little less lonely & manifestly more lovely. LESS LONELY! MORE LOVELY! Take a chance on a Chat Perdu event!
