On Sept. 18, it was an honour to be asked to host the first event of the 40th season of readings at Harourfront Centre. Rebranded (I dig it) as IFOA Weekly, the event took place in front of a full-to-bursting house in the Brigantine Room. Why such a crowd? For Matt Galloway interviewing Joseph Boyden, that’s why. ¬†Props to the Boyden fans who waited in line for 2 hours to get their books signed after the event.

On Tuesday, September 25, Zadie Smith takes part in an onstage interview with Eleanor Wachtel at Harbourfront Centre.

The event is sold out, but if you’re lucky enough to have a ticket I’ll see you there (or not, because the lights pointing at the stage are actually very bright…) when I get up to do the “hello and welcome” part.

 

 

Tonight, I’m heading down to Harbourfront Centre for the beginning of what will be long but also extremely fun weekend of book festival overload at the International Festival of Authors (IFOA).

First up, I’ll be hosting a reading with Gary Barwin, Jennifer Haigh, Colson Whitehead and Sarah Winman on stage at the Lakeside Terrace.

Tickets available here.
