CanLit grows hair, raises money for Movember

It’s halfway through Movember, and even some of Canada’s literary talent are sporting new upper-lip hair, raising money for prostate cancer research.

Q&Q discovered The Cat’s Mustache, a hirsute team of Canadian authors and poets, which includes Michael Redhill, Lawrence Hill, Adam Sol, Michael Winter, David Seymour, and Michael Healy, with support from honorary member Hadley Dyer, executive editor of children’s books at HarperCollins Canada.

The Cat’s Mustache has already raised almost $3,000, with Hill bringing in the most donations at over $1,800. But it’s team captain Redhill who appears to be winning in the hair-growth department. On his Movember profile Web page Redhill describes his current look as “pornshop owner.”
