Seminal New York writer and director Spike “It’s Gotta Be the Shoes” Lee will be speaking at Roy Thompson Hall on March 14, making his first public appearance in Toronto in five years. Organized by Ryerson University Students Administrative Council, the talk and question/answer period is bound to include subjects like the New York Knicks and the time they lost the championship to the Houston Rockets in 1993.
The filmmaker is on something of a university/college tour lately, speaking to students at his Atlanta Alma mater and various other Red State schools. The event will promote the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on March 21. Tickets went on sale yesterday. Ry-High students pay $27 and the rest of the world pays $42.
