Toronto’s International Festival of Author’s was glamorous and welcoming. Rubbing shoulders with the literati, it did feel like a superstar event. Mine was a cabaret style reading in the Harbourfront Centre’s Brigantine Room with Bonnie Burnard and Miream Toewes. Incredible! It was such a treat to hear them read. To hear their cadence. To fall into their words. It was humbling and inspiring to be surrounded by such talent.
