Gina Cole’s debut book of short stories Black Ice Matter, will be officially launched by Selina Tusitala Marsh, who described Gina’s writing as, “Fijian-infused, queer-inflected, and crafted with legal precision.”
Black Ice Matter is a collection of short stories exploring the connections between extremes of heat and cold. Sometimes this is spatial or geographical; sometimes it is metaphorical. Sometimes it involves juxtapositions of time; sometimes heat appears where only ice is expected.
The book launch will be at Tautai and Artspace Friday 9 September, 6pm, level 1, 300 Karangahape Rd, Auckland.
