Join TINARS (This Is Not A Reading Series) and Random House Canada for a special evening launching a remarkable novel by Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, All The Broken Things. Kathryn will do a slide show presentation on spectacle and how we see. Nick Mount, fiction editor of The Walrus and a noted literary critic and UofT Professor, will join Kathryn for a discussion of her work. The Gladstone’s Ballroom will be transformed in a carnivalesque manner featuring fun house mirrors, banners and objects that evoke Toronto’s CNE.
A fun house mirror on Toronto that will frighten, surprise and enlighten you.
“All the Broken Things enchanted me, opened my eyes, broke my heart, made me wonder, left me changed. Kuitenbrouwer has told a remarkable story that explores the tenuous thresholds between illusion and reality, myth and history, monstrosity and beauty. This is a truly magical and important book.” —Jessica Grant, author of Come, Thou Tortoise “
