Today in Toronto

Today In Toronto: Canada Reads, Mexican Summer, Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, Blue Coffee

Today in Toronto lit fans can make a morning journey to the CBC where Jian Ghomeshi hosts day one of Canada Reads, a week-long debate over which book every Canadian should read (how authoritarian). In the evening The Garrison hosts the hilarious Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, and Blue Coffee returns to the Magpie. There's also some great live music to choose from, with Mexican Summer bands Quilt and Weyes Blood at the Drake, Ringo Deathstarr at Silver Dollar, and White Denim at The Horseshoe.
