Tuesday, September 5th

Toronto

Eaten Back to Life Launch

Where: Type Books, 883 Queen Street W, Toronto, ON

When: 7pm

More information: Join us on Tuesday, September 5th as Jonah Campbell launches his second book, Eaten Back to Life. Campbell will be in conversation with famous talking head and author of This is a Book about the Kids in the Hall, John Semley.
And because, as we well know, wine without literature is a ghost, literature without wine a corpse (or vice versa?), wine vibes will be provided by GRAPE WITCHES, with snacks by Scout Canning for snacks!

Vancouver

Naben Ruthnum's Curry: Vancouver Launch

Where: Pat's Pub and Brewhouse, 403 East Hastings, Vancouver, BC

More information: No two curries are the same. In Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race, Naben Ruthnum asks why the dish is supposed to represent everything brown people eat, read, and do. Using familial recipes and popular literary examples, Ruthnum cracks open anew the staid narrative of an authentically Indian diasporic experience. 
Whet your appetite with a spicy reading, have a rich Q&A for desert, and satisfy your cravings for more by taking a signed book home (doggy bag not included). Special guests include Kevin Chong and Adèle Barclay. 
Doors at 7, readings at 7:30. Books for sale from Pulpfiction.
