DANIELLE LAFRANCE is a poet, librarian, and militant. Since 1983 she has mostly resided on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. She is the author Species Branding (CUE, 2010) and Friendly Fire(Talonbooks, 2016) as well as the chapbook Pink Slip (SIC, 2013). From 2012 to 2016, she co-organized alongside Anahita Jamali Rad the feminist materialist reading and journal series, About a Bicycle. Recent attempts at Spanish-English poetry translations have been published on the online magazine inPeregrinos y sus Letras. She believes in putting an end to what she doesn’t like.
ANAHITA JAMALI RAD (for love and autonomy Talon Books, 2016) was born in Iran and lives on Unceded Coast Salish Territories. Anahita Jamali Rad’s work always engages with materiality, love, affect, ideology, violence, class, collectivity, desire, place, and displacement. Anahita Jamali Rad co-edited the critical materialist feminist journal About a Bicycle, which was produced by members of the women’s reading and discussion collective of the same name.

Gold

 

I know it’s been said here before, but now in our final days at Rick’s Cafe it can not be overstated just how much it meant for cafe owner Richard Ilnycki to give knife | fork | book a home this past year. Rick has always been quick to say it was ‘all my doing,’ but I know differently. Rick, you, you saying yes, changed my life. Not only mine, but the lives of many connected to the cafe and the shop. This is how knife | fork | book came into being: your generosity. You’re now a part of Toronto’s literary story forever. My life was made so much richer by being part of your beautiful family, and the regulars there who also welcomed me with such open arms. Isabel, Drew, Nathan, Dylan, Bri-Bri, I treasure each of you dearly and thanks for your love. You kept me going.
And Rick, it was all your doing. Stay gold, my friend.
