I love fall - there are always so many interesting talks and events going on around town...many of them free. Here's one coming up on October 20th at 8 p.m. at the Lillian H. Smith Branch (Toronto Public Library, 239 College Street):
The 24th annual Helen E. Stubbs Memorial Lecture
Arthur Slade: "From Hobbits to HTML"
Art Slade is one of Canada's most versatile authors, whose award-winning work ranges from realistic historical fiction about the Great War through steampunk, graphic novels and fantasy adventures. As a young reader, Art was influenced by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and Ray Bradbury. Now an established author, he explores becoming his own publisher through ebooks. Is this the future of children's writers?
