Join us for this Toronto Book Club monthly meeting, which will be FREE to attend and will focus on the 2015-published book “The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto's First Immigrant Neighbourhood” by Toronto-based authors John Lorinc, Michael McClelland, Ellen Scheinberg and Tatum Taylor Chaubal.

WHY ATTEND:

  1. Connect with others who love reading books, who are interested in Toronto’s past and its future, and who are happy to meet others who share these shared interests; and
  2. Have a nice cup of tea and/or coffee, and/or a snack while listening to and taking part in insightful conversations about “the story of the growth and destruction of Toronto's first 'priority neighbourhood.'“ (note: the event is free to attend, but the tea, coffee, snacks are for you to cover so please bring cash).

WHEN:

Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 10:00am

The Toronto Book Club meeting will last approximately 90 minutes

WHERE WE WILL MEET:

The book club meeting will take place at Morning Parade Coffee Bar (1952 Gerrard St. E., Toronto, ON M4E 2B1).

BEFORE OUR TORONTO BOOK CLUB MEETING:

  1. RSVP to reserve your spot. This allows us to keep track of the number of attendees, given that our meeting venue has limited capacity.
  2. Borrow the book via the Toronto Public Library (don’t have a library card yet? here’s how to get one) OR buy it via bookstores such as the U of T Bookstore (note that there’s no revenue for us if you buy it via this or any other bookstore).
  3. Read the book and take note of: i. One key idea that stood out to you from the book, which you found helpful; and ii. One quote that caused you to reflect on something you could take action on.(Note: we are suggesting this in order to ensure that our meeting will feature meaningful conversations that those in attendance will find helpful from either a reflection and/or action to take standpoint).
