IFOA and HarperCollins invite you to the release of Mitzi Bytes by Kerry Clare as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series.
“In Mitzi Bytes, Kerry Clare melds a stew of motherhood, modernity and mounting, with a sly combo of raucous humour, dollops of humanity and lively congenial truths. This is a delightful novel where a woman finds self-acceptance amid the unfortunate ramifications of her snappy social observations.” —Anakana Schofield, Scotiabank Giller Prize-shortlisted author of Martin John
A grown-up Harriet the Spy for the digital age, Mitzi Bytes examines the bonds of family and friendship, and the truths we dare tell about ourselves—and others.
Toronto Lit Up is a three year initiative, spearheaded by the Toronto Arts Council and IFOA, designed to spotlight Toronto’s writers and empower local artists with career-building opportunities.
