Alice Burdick reading in Toronto!

We don’t get to see Alice often enough here in Ontario now that she lives in Nova Scotia, so the great readings Kirby is hosting at Knife Fork Books are a wonderful way to catch up. All month long there are writers visiting from across the country. Alice will be reading this Saturday, April 14 at 3 pm from her latest Mansfield title Book of Short Sentences. It’s also a great time and excuse to explore Kensington Market before or after the reading. You can find Alice and all the other events at
