Lucky Number Thirteen

2007_01_11rawlings2.jpgOne of Toronto’s newest literary series, Toronto Wordstage (which is run by Allan Briesmaster, John Calabro, Beatriz Hausner, and Lucianno Iacobelli) celebrates its 13th edition this evening with a stellar line-up of writers.
Tonight’s event will feature novelist and playwright Michael Wex (Born to Kvetch: Yiddish Language and Culture in All Its Moods); poet Rafi Aaron (Surviving the Censor: The Unspoken Words of Osip Mandelstam); Sonia D’Agostino; and poet a. rawlings (pictured, and author of Wide slumber for lepidopterists).
Toronto Wordstage takes place at Cervejaria – 842 College, just west of Ossington. The doors open at 7 and readings begin at 7:30 p.m. It’s free, but donations will be accepted.
