Bad Bridesmaid

2007_01_22bride.jpgWith the National Bridal Show just around the corner, there have been a number of literary tie-ins in the city this month. Tomorrow night, This Is Not A Reading Series helps Siri Agrell launch her new book, Bad Bridesmaid: Bachelorette Brawls & Taffeta Tantrums, What We Go Through for Her Big Day, published by HarperCollins Canada.
The book is billed as “part memoir…and part cultural analysis” and chronicles Agrell, a National Post reporter and columnist, as she goes through the trials and tribulations that come with that hallowed honour: being a bridesmaid.
If you’ve been reading the Post the past week you would have seen some excerpts from the book and know Agrell was, ahem, “fired” from her role of bridesmaid. The book also examines the role of the bridesmaid throughout history right up to “their contemporary role of strapless dress-wearing servitude.”
The launch begins at 7pm at the Gladstone Hotel and is free. There will be games, prizes, books will be signed and bridesmaid dresses are encouraged (though perhaps not like the young lady to the left). Torontoist will be there.

    If I had a nickel for ever time I’ve seen a zombie bride with her throat slashed on a streetcar…

    and she’s STILL cute.
    Great, I wanna date zombies now. Lower the expectations and I’m trollin’ the undead. Nice.
