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 (firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
