Event description

Description

Celebrate the launch of 1979: A Novel by Ray Robertson. Presented by Biblioasis and the International Festival of Authors, with author Ray Robertson in attendance.

Robertson’s art is as character-driven as Mordecai Richler’s … he wants us to behave better and doesn’t care who he angers along the way. – The Globe and Mail

Ray Robertson is the author of the novels Home Movies, Heroes, Moody Food, Gently Down the Stream, What Happened Later, David, I Was There the Night He Died, and 1979, as well as three books of non-fiction, Mental Hygiene: Essays on Writers and Writing, Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live, and Lives of the Poets (with Guitars). His work has been translated into several languages. Born and raised in Southwestern Ontario, he lives in Toronto.
