How did English alumna Rupi Kaur (BA 15) end up on a bestseller list? Find out on Thursday, March 24, 2016 – 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM as the poetess and author of Milk and Honey, will give a poetry reading and chat about her self-publishing experiences that led to Amazon’s bestsellers list.

This unique event combines art, feminism, and entrepreneurship and is generously sponsored by Women’s Studies (Faculty of Arts), and co-presented by The Book Store and Velocity Start.

Read about Rupi’s runaway success with Milk and Honey, and her final English project, period., that sparked a viral sensation and made Instagram change their content policy. As an extra bonus, here is an early Words in Place interview with Rupi where she discusses her experience of the UWaterloo English co-op program.
