Eleanor Catton, Booker Prize-winning author of The Luminaries, joins us to discuss her new novel, Birnam Wood. A gripping psychological thriller centred around an unregulated, sometimes-criminal, sometimes-philanthropic guerrilla gardening collective, Birnam Wood is Shakespearean in its drama, Austenian in its wit, and, like both influences, fascinated by what makes us who we are. In conversation with novelist Claire Cameron.

Question and answer session and book signing to follow. Books available for purchase.

Note: This is an in-person event at The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon, the premiere event space for Toronto Public Library’s cultural and heritage programming located on the second floor of the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge Street).

Arrive early, meet people. The talk starts at 7 pm, but doors open at 6 pm. Come early so you can chat with your fellow literature lovers, and make new friends. As with all Appel Salon events, we'll have a cash bar with a selection of beer and wine, as well as sandwiches and snacks.

Reminder! We oversell these events to make sure that most people have an opportunity to attend. Tickets are only guaranteed until 15 minutes before the show starts, at which point we will start opening up available spots to the rush line.

This event will not be live streamed but the replay will be made available to watch on TPL’s YouTube channel.
