Smog alerts, humidity, heat, makes you want to just sit in the park doesn’t it? And wouldn’t your evening picnic be a little nicer with some of Toronto’s best writers? It’s the basic premise for the Scream Literary Festival, what started as a one night reading in High Park has now expanded into a nearly two week long fest that stretches across the city.
There’s a special Scream edition of literary art installation Murmur in the Annex tommorow, events at the Victory Cafe, the Press Club and more. Other highlights include a dinner-time booklength reading of Ticknor and a main-stage reading on July 11th with David Bezmozgis, Jeffrey Moore and tons more.
Scream passports are $20 bucks at fine indie bookstores everywhere.
