Tomorrow night promises to be a great time for book lovers in Toronto. This Is Not A Reading Series presents what is perhaps their most anticipated event of the season as author Vendela Vida comes to town.
Vida is in town to launch her new novel, Let The Northern Lights Erase Your Name. The book concerns a young woman who learns the man she thought was her father really wasn’t. She embarks on a journey to find her real father, heading north of the Arctic Circle to Lapland.
In addition to being an accomplished novelist – her previous book was the acclaimed And Now You Can Go – Vida is also the author of the non-fiction book Girls On The Verge. Besides that, she’s the co-editor of The Believer, a magazine which is always a great read. And yes, she is also one-half of a heavyweight literary couple alongside her husband, Dave Eggers.
Making this a can’t miss event, Vida will be in conversation with one of Toronto’s finest young writers, Sheila Heti. The party starts tomorrow night 7:30 p.m. at the Gladstone and is free.
