Event description

Description

The Italian philosopher, Emanuele Coccia, presents his much praised book, The Life of Plants: A Metaphysics of Mixture, where he presents a new way of thinking about the natural world and the need for humans to look to plants to learn about what it means to be alive.

This event is a partnership with Istituto italiano di cultura - Toronto.

Q&A and book signing to follow. Books available for purchase.




Please don't print your tickets! We're trying to reduce paper waste for Appel Salon events, so please don't bother printing your ticket. We'll either scan your ticket on your smartphone or quickly find your name on our tablets and check you in.

Arrive early, meet people. The talk starts at 6 pm, but doors open at 5:30 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 beers, wine, and liquor, as well as sandwiches and snacks.




This event is part of our literary series, The Other Shelf, where we present exceptional writers in a smaller space. These events are held in the Novella Room in the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon. Check out the full lineup at tpl.ca/appelsalon
