Toronto Lit Up: Catriona Wright

Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 7:00 PM
The Ossington
Book Launch: Book Launch
Participants: Catriona Wright

Catriona Wright is releasing Difficult People—the follow-up to her debut poetry collection—and she’s celebrating with a Toronto Lit Up book launch! Join Nightwood Editions and the Toronto International Festival of Authors for this exciting event.

sept-27-2018-wright-catriona-difficult-people-bookcoverManipulators and liars, egomaniacs, bullies, interrupters, condescenders, ice queens, backstabbers, hypocrites, withholders, belligerents, self-deceivers, whiners, know-it-alls, nitpickers: these are some of the characters you’ll encounter in Difficult People, a collection of stories that investigates and celebrates difficult people (and some animals).

As these characters fumble through their quests for YouTube fame, stand-up glory, romantic love, stable employment or anyone who can tolerate them, they reveal that we are all, in our own ways, difficult people.




RSVP here.

Toronto Lit Up is a three year initiative, spearheaded by the Toronto Arts Council and the Toronto International Festival of Authors, designed to spotlight Toronto’s writers and empower local artists with career-building opportunities. Click here for more information.
