Olivia B was featured in a recent post on the most excellent website VancouverIsAwesome.com. Here’s a snippet:
Favourite Vancouver/Lower Mainland writer?
I don’t know if I have a “favourite”, but right now I’m really excited about lisa b., who is a spoken word poet I discovered through the Van slam scene. I find Lisa’s writing to be very thought-provoking, image-rich, and poignant. I’m a fan.
The one book you always recommend is…
Paper Towns by John Green!
What’s next on your reading list?
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins
Your life story is published tomorrow. What’s the title?
Hopefully something incredibly convoluted, abstract and confusing like: Here Lies Olivia B: A Ninja and Pirate of a Gentleman Who Saved a Few Lives During the Zombie Apocalypse and Stuck with Harry Until the Very End.
Olivia B is a Hullabaloo artist and will be presenting a mini-feature set on Friday, April 13th as part of Semi-Final #1 at The Rio Theatre.
