Penny Verbruggen's
"Earl Grey"

tonight's writer and stories

Penny Verbruggen is mom to Jessica, Jeremy and Zoe. She teaches high school English and ESL at Denis Morris Catholic High School in St. Catharines. Verbruggen is a PhD student at the University of Toronto, a writer, and a jewellery designer.

Penny Verbruggen is a writer who works between the lines. You will find her meaning among the beautiful pattern of details that she presents in her stories. Last week, and on tonight's show, May 1 and 8, Life Rattle presents six new stories written by Verbruggen—the “Andrew Stories.” When asked to describe this series, Verbruggen replied: “I suppose the stories are steps in my post-divorce dating dance. Clumsy. Ill-timed. Sweet.”
