Breaking Down the Door: A conversation with Robert Sirman

An evening with the former CEO of the Canadian Council for the Arts, Robert Sirman.

Currently, the Canadian government is working to create distance between Canada’s political class and public service and members of the public, shutting the door on open and transparent communications. Only by fully understanding these dysfunctional trends can we hope to overcome them. So, Sirman will not only give us a sense of their importance, he will offer his own view of a way forward as well.

This is the first event in the LRC’s new season of public conversations, and is presented in partnership with the Spur festival, and with the support of the Metcalf Foundation.

Open Book’s literary salon featuring Kamal Al-Solaylee, Camilla Gibb, and Steven Heighton

Open Book is hosting a literary salon in the Harbourfront Centre’s Brigantine Room with three fabulous authors: Kamal Al-Solaylee, Camilla Gibb, and Steven Heighton. Come join us for a fun and casual evening of literary discussion, writing advice, and more.

Open Book and CBC Books columnist Becky Toyne will moderate a discussion on the theme of “Writing & Place.” Our brilliant authors will chat about how place can be so much more than just a backdrop, from how the places they’ve lived, travelled, and written have affected their writing to the politics, history, and personal issues involved in writing place.

Guests are free to add their own questions throughout the night or to simply relax and enjoy the discussion.

Please RSVP on Facebook or email grace@openbooktoronto.com to confirm space. Cash bar.
