Toronto Launch of WRITING OUR WAY HOME June 10th at Columbus Centre

The Toronto Launch of Writing Our Way Home (Guernica 2013) will be Monday, June 10th from 7:00 – 10:00PM, in the Rotunda at the Columbus Centre, 901 Lawrence Ave. West, (at Dufferin St), Toronto.

Writing Our Way Home, edited by Licia Canton and Caroline Morgan Di Giovanni, is an important contribution to literary studies. “Italian-Canadian writers are not just Canadian writers, but world writers,” states literary critic Elena Lamberti in the introduction to Writing Our Way Home. “They write from Canada with an original point of view on multiple (hybrid) identities and have something to tell the whole world …”. A unique volume of creative and critical texts, Writing Our Way Home features contributors from Canada, Italy and the United States.

Preparations are underway for the Books and Biscotti event that night at the Columbus Centre Rotunda as well. This literary evening will start with the Toronto launch of Writing Our Way Home, followed by a fine list of Italian Canadian writers in the GTA who have signed up to take part!

This event is free, there is plenty of room for an audience, and there will be light refreshments. Bring your friends and relations!

The Association of Italian Canadian Writers and the National Congress of Italian Canadians are partners in support of this literary evening. June is Italian Canadian Heritage Month, and there are many events coming up to celebrate, so be sure to check back regularly!
