Mark your calendars! This year’s Get Lit event in Toronto will be held on Thursday, October 22nd at the Gladstone Hotel.
Get Lit is foremost a reading series, featuring a diverse cast of Canadian celebrities who share a piece of writing with the audience – an excerpt from a book , a poem, a shor t story, a scene from a play – that has moved and inspired them to success. There will be five other readers in addition to me.
All proceeds go to The Running and Reading Clubs, a unique after-school program that encourages children in underprivileged neighborhoods across Canada to become physically active, learn to love reading , and break the cycle of generational poverty.
Tickets are going fast – be sure to reserve yours now!
