CONTEST – This Book Is Broken at Harbourfront Centre – October 30, 2009
AmazonYes, the “I” in IFOA stands for “International” (the rest of it is “Festival Of Authors”), but that’s no reason we can’t celebrate writers that hail from somewhat closer to home, and that’s why eye and Pitchfork scribe Stuart Berman will be the featured guest at the Harbourfront Centre’s Lakeside Terrace this Friday night, October 30, to be interviewed by The Toronto Star’s Ben Rayner about his recent book This Book Is Broken: The Broken Social Scene Story, the biography of Broken Social Scene. Also joining the music scribes in the talk will be Arts & Crafts honcho Jeffrey Remedios and Broken Social principals Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning and the discussion will be followed by a performance from BSS guitarist Jason Collett.
Tickets for the all-ages event are $15 or free for students with a valid student ID, but courtesy of the IFOA, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the evening. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want my book broken” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, October 28.
