Last week, writer Lynn Coady received Canada’s most prestigious literary honour, the Giller Prize, for her short story collection Hellgoing, cementing that 2013 is not only the year of the short story, but also the year of the female writer in mainstream literature.
Coady’s win came less than a month after one of her mentors, Alice Munro, became the first Canadian woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and only the 13th woman since the prize was first awarded in 1901.
A free reading at the lovely Cafune Brazilian Cafe.
Food as love, food as reward, food as revenge...This Toronto writer reads from her award- winning book Comfort Food for Breakups the Memoir of a Hungry Girl, and stories adapted from her food blog.
We are super excited to be hosting Ottawa activist and writer Joel Harden as he launches his new book, Quiet No More: New Political Activism In Canada And Around The Globe.
Quiet No More explores how ordinary citizens - particularly young people - are taking power back in our democracy. Joel will be joined in conversation with Ottawa indigenous activist, Clayton Thomas-Mueller.
Join us for the launch of Michael Hingston's The Dilettantes, "a fresh take on the campus novel".
The Peak is a university student newspaper with a hard-hitting mix of inflammatory editorials, hastily thrown-together comics and reviews, and a news section run the only way self-taught journalists know how—sloppily. With savage wit, intoxicating energy, and a fine-tuned ear for the absurd, Hingston drags the campus novel, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century.
