Coach House Books launches The Ward in The Ward

Where: 10 Trinity Square, Toronto, ON

When: 7pm

More information: On Wednesday, May 20, you're invited to join us for the launch of The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto's First Immigrant Neighbourhood (eds. John Lorinc, Michael McClelland, Ellen Scheinberg and Tatum Taylor) at the Church of the Holy Trinity (10 Trinity Square), one of the few remaining pieces of Toronto's first immigrant enclave. This highly anticipated city-centric book tells the story of the growth and destruction of Toronto's first 'priority neighbourhood.' 
In addition to brief remarks from the editors and a slideshow display of historical images from the book, the event will also feature snacks and (affordable) libations, and of course, books available for purchase. 
Come meet The Ward's diverse contributors and share your stories and connections to The Ward. We believe this is a galvanizing collection that will help change the chemistry of our city, and this event is just the kickoff for the discussions that we hope will emerge!
