Some tours explore areas people normally wouldn’t have access to. Other tours give context to major landmarks. The Common Room series takes a different approach, taking time to question the everyday things we give little thought to. This installment will explore the mundane yet weird world of public restrooms, an oddly loaded public space. Leading the way will be award-winning Halifax author Lezlie Lowe, a noted bathroom expert, who will explore the grungy, pristine, political, social, and necessary world of public toilets. She’ll also be at Moon Palace Books on Friday for a talk on bathrooms with public space adventurer Bill Lindeke.
