– Word on the Street this Sunday. And this year’s line-up looks great. The site doesn’t say when each author will speak (annoying) so you’ll just have to make a day of it. TOist crush D Bez will be at the Toronto Book Award tent, along with Paul Smith spokesman Russell Smith. Sheila Heti, David Layton and numerous others will read. And TOist, along with a handful of great local bloggers, will participate in a blog panel at 4:15pm, thoughtfully organized by Spacing’s Matt B.
– Navigate the Streets takes place Saturday, and you can still enter.
– We’ve added a whole new whack of lovely links to our blogroll. Drop us a line if we’ve missed yours.
– And on a final sad note, we’re getting wider. Best quote from the Star piece on expanded transit seat size: “They might want to take an impression of Moscoe’s butt so big-ass people like he and myself have room to sit.” Free TOist pins to anyone who can get an impression of the fair councillor’s posterior.
