Tonight at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West, 2nd Floor) novelist and Quill and Quire editor Nathan Whitlock (A Week of This) interviews fellow scribe Andrew Kaufman (All My Friends Are Superheroes) on the perils of writing the dreaded second novel. Is there such thing as a sophomore curse? Can a novelist live up to the hope and hype of their debut? These and other questions will be engaged in a wide-ranging on-stage interview. Kaufman’s second novel, The Waterproof Bible, will also be launched tonight, but because the event is part of This Is Not a Reading Series there will be no readings. Not a word. Admission is $5, free if you buy a copy of the book, and the doors open at 7 p.m.
Torontoist Books caught up with Nathan Whitlock to get a preview of the event.
