Our Third Edition of TOK: Writing the New Toronto launches at Luminato

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Join Diaspora Dialogues at the Drake Underground on Wednesday June 11 at 8:00 p.m. for a literary cabaret to celebrate the new book. You’ll hear readings by contributing writers Judy Fong Bates, Wasela Hiyate, Stacey May Fowles, Yvette Nolan and Alissa York; plus a sneak peek at next year’s book contributors Daniel David Moses and spoken word artist Shauntay Grant from Halifax. Then, after you’ve gotten your new book signed, dance the night away to the lively salsa music of Lady Son y Articulo Veinte.

Luminato, Toronto’s Festival of Arts & Creativity, invites you to 2008’s dynamic literary program. The festival aims to bring Canadian and international authors together around literary and political themes in addition to showcasing new works.

This year’s line-up includes perspectives on South Asia, a focus on war and politics through illustration, a celebration of a renowned literary master, the launch of the third instalment of a city-centric anthology, as well as a festival of short stories.

The richest discussions occur because of unexpected collaborations. For more information visit Luminato.com.
