Cory at Oakville Public Library (and other Toronto stops) this week

Great news, West Torontonians! The free Oakville Public Library event I'm doing next Wednesday has been opened to all comers (it was previously teen-only). There's refreshments, too. You need to pick up a ticket at a local OPL branch, or you can call or email ( or 905-815-2042 ext. 5037) to book ahead. Hope to see you there!

Cory Doctorow (Little Brother, For the Win) will be at the Oakville Public Library to introduce high school students to his latest novel, Pirate Cinema! Pick up your free ticket at all Oakville Public Library branches starting September 10 for your chance to hear Cory read from his book due out October 5. He’ll then talk about creativity, copyright and bill C-11 followed by a Q&A.

Wednesday, September 26: 6-8pm
Central Branch Auditorium – 120 Navy Street
Refreshments will be served

And for those of you in central Toronto, I'm at the Glenn Gould Variations this weekend and I'll be at BakkaPhoenix books on the 27th at 7PM.

OPL : Cory Doctorow!



  1. Wow.  Not that I could possibly make it (I live in LA) but the event in Oakville sounds great!  My first job, at 14, was at the Oakville Public Library.  I worked in the Film Department – we had a fairly impressive library of 16mm films and about 20 projectors for rent.  This was right at the beginning of the video era.  VHS and Beta were still fighting it out at Oakville’s only video store ($100 membership fee!) but clever locals could rent gems like La Jetee, Lelouche’s Rendezvous, or even Potempkin for 50 cents each.

    The department self-destructed not long after I left for University at 18.  I still kick myself for not thinking to buy some of the prints they had.  Braverman’s Condensed Cream of Beatles?  Hell yeah.
