The Wonder of Storytelling:  An evening with Emma Donoghue, award winning author of Room and The Lotterys Plus One, in conversation with Charles Foran

Our evening of great literary conversation will be held at Artscape Sandbox and will include live music, complimentary wine and beer, and tasty hors d’oeuvres. Last year’s evening, featuring Yann Martel and Margaret MacMillan, was a sold-out success and this year, we’re delighted that Irish-Canadian writer Emma Donoghue will be joining us to talk about storytelling and her highly successful career with author, Charles Foran.  We expect to have another sold-out evening.

Thank you to our sponsors: BMO, HarperCollins Canada, The Hembury Group, NOW magazine, Artscape, Sublime Catering, The New Leaf, EllisDon, Martin Merry & Reid, Pennylegion/Cheung LLP and Rogers & Co.



6:00 - 7:00 pm  While listening to live music by local musicians, guests can enjoy complimentary glasses of wine and hors d'oeuvres.

7:00 - 8:00 pm  Welcome and introduction by Yun Cheng, one of Regent Park's favourite teachers and friend to the Book Bank. Conversation with Emma Donoghue to follow, with author Charlie Foran.

About This Charity

The Children’s Book Bank is dedicated to the principle that learning to read is the right of every child. Since 2008, we’ve been supplying free, gently used books to children and their families who face numerous barriers to purchasing new books. Last year, the Children’s Book Bank distributed 127,000 free books in high needs communities across Toronto. We’re committed to growing children’s imaginations and lifting people out of poverty through the development of their literacy skills. Our programming, which takes place at our storefront and throughout the city, positively contributes to literacy development for those with the greatest need. And by recycling books, which might otherwise end up in landfill, the Book Bank also contributes to a more sustainable future for all.
