Folks, doing something a bit different this year. This Spring/Summer’s reading series will be held AFTER the book fair. We want to promote it heavily at the fair and it will be posted in this Saturday’s National Post feature article on SPoT.
The reading will be held at Parts and Labour, in Parkdale, a great venue and there will be door prizes. Admission is FREE.
The lineup is fantastic:
Damian Rogers, Paper Radio
Karen Shenfeld, My Father’s Hands Spoke In Yiddish
Melanie Janisse, Orioles In The Oranges
Dane Swan, Bending The Continuum
Goran Simic, Sunrise In The Eyes Of The Snowman
There will be a 15 minute viewing of the award-winning documentary of Goran Simic, called When You Die As A Cat, as well as a Q&A after the reading with our own Sang Kim.
Don’t miss this great event. Invite your friends!
