Description

Join us for the launch of FREE MONEY, a graphic novel story by Balkhis Hashi, Abigail Ralph and Naomi Ralph, illustrated by Janine Carrington.

Synopsis

Free Money is the story of best friends - Ruth and Alina - who live in Toronto when a new program called Free Money is launched. The program promises Black and Indigenous peoples free housing, education, guaranteed employment, and other social benefits. However, by receiving "Free Money", the recipient unknowingly forfeits their right to something infinitely more valuable. With training and help from Alina, Ruth transforms into a superhero, Afro-Afro, and together they try to save the people they love from the Free Money scheme.

Event Details

The evening will include a reading from Free Money & a conversation between the authors and special guest - writer and sociologist, Eve Ewing. Remarks will begin at 5:30PM and refreshments will be served. Copies of the Free Money graphic novel will be sold at the event, as well as other special items. Only cash payments will be accepted.
