The Toronto Review of Books team is thrilled to point out that tomorrow night (Oct. 15) our senior editor Kelli Deeth launches her new collection of short fiction, The Other Side of Youth (Arsenal Pulp Press). The “Fall Fiction Feast” event at the Supermarket (268 Augusta Ave.) also features new releases from Dana Mills, Matthew Heiti and Rosemary Nixon with Coach House, Freehand, and Gaspereau presses, and the night promises “murder, missed connections, betrayal, and characters both wholesome and unsavoury.” 7pm.
Also on order for Tuesday evening, This Is Not A Reading Series (TINARS) invites you to join Ken Finkleman and Dana Golan from Breaking the Silence at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W.) for the Toronto launch of Our Harsh Logic: Israeli Soldiers’ Testimonies From the Occupied Territories, 2000-2010—“one of the most important books on Israel/Palestine in this generation,” according to The New York Review of Books.
The evening will include a discussion “about the meaning of occupation—what it’s done to Israel’s soldiers and to Palestinians.” Doors at 7:30pm. Cover is$5 or free if you buy the book.
Choosing between these launches will be tough. We suggest carefully timed visits to both.
