In Toronto? See the Canada Reads 2019 contenders in conversation at the Toronto Reference Library
When: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2019
Where: The Toronto Reference Library Atrium (789 Yonge Street)
The event is free-of-charge and open to the public. No registration is required to attend.
The final five books will be chosen from the Canada Reads 2019 longlist. The longlist is comprised of 15 Canadian works of fiction and nonfiction, which speak to this year's theme: One Book To Move You. Spanning separations and reconciliations, wars of the past and present, personal histories and imagined futures, these titles will disturb and disrupt, inspire and incite, and move readers to feel, to think and to act.
