I’m excited to be reading as part of the Toronto Writers’ Co-operative literary evening, called Exchanging Notes, next month. On September 5th, 2013, the TOWC has invited award-winning author (and my one-time mentor) Terry Fallis to chat at the Toronto Reference Library.
Prior to the interview with Terry, two TOWC members will read their work – yours truly is one of them. It all goes down at the Elizabeth Beeton Auditorium at 6:30 p.m. I’ll be reading an excerpt of my short story Where Pigeons Roost, about a woman who becomes obsessed with the underground game of pigeon-thwacking.
See you there!
Exchanging Notes: the interviews
with Terry Fallis
Host John Miller converses about the writer’s life and craft with Terry Fallis. Terry is the author of The Best Laid Plans (Leacock Medal for Humour, 2008) and The High Road. In 2011, The High Road won CBC Canada Reads as the “essential Canadian novel of the decade.” TBLP is currently in development as a CBC-Television mini-series. Terry’s continuing publisher, McClelland and Stewart, published Up and Down in 2011. It debuted on the G&M bestsellers list. Terry’s 4th novel, No Relation, will be published in May, 2014. His 5th novel is currently underway.
Terry has extensive experience in provincial and federal politics, and communications consultation with the agency he co-founded, Thornley Fallis.
A.M. Matte and John Warren of the T.O. Writers’ Co-op will read from their work.
