The Trillium Awards, Ontario’s signature annual literature awards, has been narrowed down to a short list. Many of those shortlisted authors have been confirmed for their author readings and reception, including playwright Hannah Moscovitch (This is War), poet and essayist Austin Clarke (Where the Sun Shines Best), and T.O.-based francophone writer Marguerite Andersen (La mauvaise mère).

Popular Toronto reading series Grown-Ups Read Things They Wrote as Kids (or GRTTWAK for short) is not only re-launching—it’s now being produced as a CBC Radio series. Founder and host Dan Meisner welcomes to the stage adults reading their teen journal entries, childhood writing assignments, or anything that dates back to their formative years. The reading list is now full, though there is a “wait list,” and advance tickets are recommended, as this event routinely sells out. After the readings, the event will segue into a launch party for the new CBC series.
