Something Fierce book cover

Join The Cultch for a literary evening as Carmen Aguirre (creator and performer of Blue Box) reads from her award-winning book Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter. The reading will be followed by a Q&A facilitated by Neworld Theatre Resident Producer, Marisa Smith.

The book is described as a “gripping, darkly comic memoir of a young underground revolutionary during the Pinochet dictatorship in 1980’s Chile”.

Something Fierce is the 2012: True Stories Canada Reads winner and is long-listed for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction. Last year, it was also chosen as a Globe 100 Best Book of the Year.
According to The Globe and Mail, “[Carmen Aguirre’s] story is the personal experience of a brave young woman evolving her understanding of herself and her place in the world, told with passion, personal insight, rich detail and humour… Something Fierce is raw, courageously honest and funny; an insightful journey into the formation of a revolutionary soul.”
