Murmur Goes Literary

2006_8_1murmur.gifMurmur, the green-eared audio art project that allows Torontonians to listen to neighbourhood stories through cellphones, goes literary and teams up with the City of Toronto Book Awards.
They’re recording stories with the five nominees at various locations in the city. Head down to Kensington Market to listen to Howard Akler read from his hard-boiled reporter meets thief story set in the dirty ’30s, head to U of T to hear Stephen Marche read from his very sexy Raymond and Hannah, trek out to Bathurst and Lawrence to hear John Lorinc wax lyrical about suburban strip malls, Can Lit veterans and fellow nominees M.G. Vassanji and Dionne Brand also record stories.
