Paperback head! - Tegan and SaraIdentical twins Tegan and Sara Quin have been making music together for over twenty years, a partnership that began when the two of them were teenagers in Calgary. Their joint memoir High School— which coincides with the release of their ninth album, Hey, I'm Just Like You — could have chronicled their rise to indie and later mainstream stardom. Instead, the duo revisits their roots, going back to their adolescence and young adulthood and the development of their identities before the record deals. Their book offers queer kids and adults, heterosexual or otherwise vital, non-didactic lessons on how to find one's voice—and how it's okay to mess up along the way. At a noisy bar in the West Village, I sat down with the two musicians to discuss how the book was written, what they learned about both themselves and each other during the process, and the weirdness of getting in touch with old crushes. SQ: Originally, the book involved a much bigger period of time.

Hello Everyone especially people who like photos and words , We have some great news to announce today! Sara and I had no idea people would love the books so much. Which is why they sold out so quick. It appears we did not make enough. Everyone seems to have loved their box sets but.. And expensive to buy. And even more expensive to ship out to fans around the world.

To be a twin can be a psychological house of mirrors. And so where better to meet up with Tegan and Sara Quin — feminist pop heroes, freshly minted authors, and, like us, identical twins — than at a kaleidoscopic infinity room in Chelsea? As we left the small mirrored room at the kitschy Museum of Illusions , where our likenesses warped and refracted, we encountered a third set of twins. Reality grew ever more psychedelic, and we snapped a photograph of the six of us to commemorate it. They discovered and explored their sexuality.
