The Stories That Are Great Within Us launch – Windup Bird Café, Sang Kim’s new restaurant

Friday and Saturday, November 15 & 16  •  6:15 – 9:30, at Windup Bird Café ~ 382 College Street

A Special Dual-Evening Launch of The Stories That Are Great Within Us ~ “The Exile book of… Toronto Stories”

Toronto’s inimitable Restaurateur Sang Kim presents a very special double-evening launch. Friday: Austin Clarke, Leon Rooke, Barry Callaghan, Katherine Govier, and Matt Shaw (winner of the $10,000 Journey Prize); Saturday: David Bezmozgis, Anne Michaels, Joe Fiorito, Morley Callaghan (read by Barry Callaghan), Christine Miscione and Sang Kim (both winners of the $15,000 Carter V. Cooper/Exile Short Fiction Award).

Toronto is now the fourth largest city in North America. Over the last 60 years it has been turned upside down and inside out, while its writers and artists have given vibrant voice to the city’s unique character.  Toronto is the centre of their stories, their visions, their place of pride; each work infused with the mythologies, histories and personalities that showcase Toronto as an epicentre of culture, intrigue, and enriching experiences. Northrop Frye once said “Where is here?” … Well, the writers and artists in this anthology have shown that Toronto is the here.
