Join Katherine Govier, Joy Kogawa, the University of Toronto’s writer in residence, and Toronto’s poet laureate George Elliott Clarke in a celebration of freedom of expression in Canada. We’ll have readings from the authors, a discussion of the state of freedom of expression in Canada moderated by author Marian Botsford Fraser, and an open mic session where people can pick up and read from their favourite banned book of choice. Many thanks to the Hart House Literary and Library Committee for co-hosting!! February 24 – March 2 is Freedom to Read week – you can check out a full listing of fantastic events taking place across Canada at www.freedomtoread.ca.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
