Shawn Hitchins returns to Small World Music Centre (April 11th at 8 pm) to celebrate the launch of his audiobook A Brief History Of Oversharing. Inspired by Stuart McLean, An Evening Of Oversharing includes performances by guest comedians and musicians bridged with live readings by Hitchins.

A Brief History Of Oversharing landed on Canadian, U.S., and U.K. bookshelves in September 2017 to excellent reviews and notices.

CBC Arts included the memoir in its round-up of 2017 LGBTQ arts and culture watershed

“Hitchins has a gift for telling outwardly repulsive stories in a way that actually draws people in.” (Foreword Reviews, ✮✮✮✮✮/5)

“Hitchins is willing to excoriate himself to amuse — and, just maybe, enrich — his audience.” (Quill And Quire)
