Book Launch Party and Celebration at Calabash Bistro July 30th


Join Julie Peters for the launch and celebration of her new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango 2019). Enjoy the delicious food and drink at Calabash and enjoy some fantastic poetry, dance, and music on the theme of Desire!

Bring your copy of the book (or a receipt) as your cover fee and have it signed! Cover is $15 otherwise.

WANT is an incredibly intimate story of one person’s recovery, survival, and everything that comes after. It is about the possibilities of love, desire, and pleasure after trauma and all the ways we can help ourselves get through. It is the most fun book about sexual assault you’ve ever read!

If you’d prefer to get it from a local independent bookstore, order it from Pulp Fiction for the same price as you’d get it on Amazon. Call 604.876.4311 to order.

PS buying the book on Amazon (and leaving a 5-star review!) is the absolute best way to support Julie and help more people find this book. This book will not be for sale at this event.
