About the authors and their work:

About Leah Ranada
Leah Ranada was born in the Philippines. She moved to Canada in 2006, shortly after graduating from University of Santo Tomas in Manila. She attended The Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University in 2013. She lives in New Westminster and blogs at leahranada.com. The Cine Star Salon is her debut novel.

About The Cine Star Salon
Leah Ranada’s debut novel is a graphic and engaging depiction of the importance of women’s work and the loyalties that connect friends across oceans. The Cine Star Salon marks the entry of a vital new voice in Canadian literature.

About Andy Zuliani
Andy Zuliani is a writer and multimedia artist who lives in the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. In his written and audio-visual work, he is drawn to the cultural afterlives of the 1960s; to the possibilities of ambience, tone, and collective feeling; and to narratives of crisis, of healing, and of improvised communities of care.

About Last Tide
Andy Zuliani’s Last Tide is a vital debut novel and an edgy glimpse at a world just beyond tomorrow, and a sharp reminder of what society deems valuable.
