An eclectic literary salon, ad hoc and sneakily wonderful. Tell your favourites.
A reading, some music, a break, a reading. Everyone gets 20 minutes. The crowd is supportive and friendly, curious, thoughtful, engaged. You will probably make a new good friend. This month featuring: TARA FARAHANI is an enthraller: a writer, poet, storyteller and activist based in Toronto. Also the creative heart and mind behind Stupid Cupid. Tara will read for us. [https://tarainwonderland.com/] RUBY RANDALL is sublime: a singer-songwriter living in Toronto, she's just emerged from the studio with her second EP. Ruby will play for us. EMMA HEALEY is a certain kind of magic: she writes poetry in Toronto and publishes that poetry, along with skads of non-fiction, all over the place. Emma will read for us.
