Hosted by CBC’s Matt Galloway, the launch will feature fiction writers Antanas Sileika, Gul Joya Jafri, Sandra Tam, and Sabrina Ramnanan; and poets Ken Babstock and Marge Lam. The writers will read selections from the book and discuss the process of capturing their particular takes on the city. Copies of the brand-new book will be available, followed by a very special musical jam performance by LAQR—a group of Toronto musicians curated by LAL’s Rosina Kazi especially for the launch, including Santosh Naidu, Matt Maaskant, Nuno Gervasio, Ian de Souza and Kazi. Doors open at 7:00 p.m, Gladstone Hotel Ballroom, 1214 Queen Street West.
